I'll agree with you that we shouldn't be throwing people in for a title shot, but I WOULD like to see Sherk defending the belt at least 2 times a year. If the UFC doesn't have the competition to test him, they should try to bring it in from other organizations.

Yeah Edwards is a way better fighter than anyone Melvin's faced. Guillard really hasnt proven anything yet except that he's exciting.

All good points. I haven't seen any impressive wins from the guys who are "the ones to watch". I want to see a good technical fight stoppage due to submission, strikes or knockout. Alot of split and decisions have been coming out of that division. Also, I haven't heard anyone say anything about Hermes Franca. Now, that guy puts on a show! Very quick with a great ground game.

I agree with most of the posts, some exciting fighters at 155, I think Melvin G. has the best shot at talking down Sherk....

True. Maelvin G. is a very big LW fighter. He needs some more development and he could be a force in that division. I just think these guys each have alot to prove because the talent in that division is so deep. Plus, They should have Sherk fight again in January once these guys start proving themselves.

I bet they put Melvin in ahead of Stevenson because of the marketing aspect. Cocky kid vs. the seasoned veteran wrestler. Joe Stevenson is a mirror image of Sherk, just without the muscle tone. Both are wrestlers, limited striking capability. I give the edge to Stevenson in submissions though. If they do a title fight soon, I hope it's a good matchup. I hate when fights go to decision. All we end up doing is hypothesizing who the true champ is.

I would love to see Melvin v. Stevenson but I don't think people are going to be thinking Cocky kid v. Seasoned Veteran Wrestler...I mean, weren't they on the same season of TUF? Melvin is cocky, ridiculously cocky. But I still like Melvin more then Stevenson because I think Joe is smug. I hate smug.

Melvin has unquestionable talent, he is a force. I question his intellingence. No one talks about it because of Melvins devasting KO body punch last fight, but he had a chance to finish it first round and started celebrating and next thing you know, this guy has his back!!!! If that happened with any of the people were talking about here, he would have been done.

Fisher definantly has a chance of getting the title and I guess possibly Pulver aswell. Pulver may have lost his last fight pathetically but he was the only UFC champ before the LW divison was taken away so I would figure its only fare to give him a shot at the title. Out of all the LW in the race for a title shot I like Guillard the most but I wanna see him beat someone worth while. His last opponent was a tough dude but I wanna see Guillard beat somone with contender status in the UFC before ganing a title shot. I see Guillard giving Sherk a run for his money in time.
