Watch Fisher vs Stout II again. If Spencer comes out looking anything close to that he wins hands down.

He was working the whole gamut of MMA skills. Boxing, Muay Thai, leg kicking, head kicking, grappling, jits, that fight had it all. His combo's were quick and they mixed up all aspects of his striking game very well.

Melvin is always a dangerous fighter. He hits with serious power and can certainly work the ground. If he ever really gets his head entirely in the game and keeps it there he may go somewhere.

His problems in this fight are quite simply that he does not possess the requisite skill set to beat Fisher. His transitions are not nearly as smooth and Fisher just rolls from one attack to the next so fluidly. I think his only real hope in this bout is to catch Spencer w/a good solid punch and knock him out. I don't believe he has the high cardio level to get thim through the sort of 2 and 3 round punishment style fight that Fisher seems to get involved in.

Man, I am so hoping to see Spence bust Melvin's punk ass. Melvin is a guy that I wish only the worst for. I can't stand him and I wish that his career with the UFC would have ended with the Clementi fight. He is such a loud mouth punk with no class that I would hate to see him beat a guy like Fisher.

My thoughts exactly.

I remember Melvin's old hype train on this forum. CRAZY. Some respected members were honestly saying things like his striking was better then BJ etc. Melvin is a good HL Reel fighter, but he needs to improve fast if he wants to hang with the wrestler loaded 155 division.

Spencer wins this fight, bar any big punches.

Fisher is a better striker and is way better on the ground. He should beat Melvin quite easily.

That's true Damone, but would you advise Spencer to stand with Melvin the whole time? He did afterall get caught by a horrible but powerful striker in Hermes Franca.

I think Spencer is the better striker as well, but things happen.. I say he plays it safe and only keeps it standing when he has too. Melvin is a way better striker than Hermes and with as much if not more power.

He has a punchers chance in this fight.

That being said, I'm picking Fisher to win.

Melvin is going to come in swinging, Spencer hits him with one punch, drops him. End of fight.

Wow this fight has explosive written all over it. I know both of these guys are willing to swing for the fences, but i see Fisher ducking a punch and taking Melvin down for some gnp.

I dunno, I've watched a few video's of Melvin lately (mainly from threads on this forum) and he seems like he has his shit together now. Don't get me wrong, he has dug himself into the deepest hole possible with his ridiculous behavior but I think for now he has his shit together. Therefore I think he will take Fisher very seriously and that being the case I think he will win the fight. He won't be too reckless but I think Melvin will weight for a missed punch and leave Fisher KTFO, easily. A good Melvin might be a serious contender one day. A good Fisher, we have already seen.
