Wow, you guys are an angry bunch. And a Mod is attacking me too? Wow, seriously guys. You cannot deny the talent Melvin has. He is an extremely explosive striker with terrific speed. Obviously, his game needs a lot of work and he is more of a boxer trying to adapt, but the potential is there for him to be a really good fighter.
Why are you guys so aggitated by Melvin & the people who support him or see talent in him? Just because he hasn't beat anyone? Well, of course he hasn't as he is a relative baby in terms of MMA, and has big holes against good ground fighters, but I fail to see how that leads to such repulsive responses to my comments.
Please explain it to me rationally, how you can act that way when I just said it is obvious many people don't like him b/c he's black and talented?
People don't give Joe that respect because he is a roided up midget wrestler, and it is apparent that is not what the general public wants to see. People want to see people finished and Guillard has the ability to do that with gusto. Joe does too, but the fact is he just isn't as exciting.
DeLarge, your comments about the intellect of his fanbase only serve to show how truly pseudo-intellectual you are. I appreciate an intelligent fight, see Herring v Big Nog, but the fact is Melvin is an exciting fighter. How is it that this makes me a mental midget? I also like Fedor, Liddell, and Gomi is one of my favorites. Everyone likes these guys because they are exciting fighters, and Melvin is too, and at some point they had not "beaten anyone" either.
Of course I bring in the race card because I didn't see anyone hating on Franklin when he hadn't "beaten anyone" (yeah he beat Tanner, lol, umm yeah and?) despite being the champ, and he ended up getting his ass whooped by Silva. The same thing may happen to Melvin, but I think the sky is the limit for him if he is willing to adjust & learn.
