I'll take that over being called a racist.

I respect those who earn it through fighting the best and winning their way to a top position in a promotion. It's a great deal different than talking yourself into a number one spot, which, if you believe Melvin, he already holds. You beat a hype train, and now you're the number one LW in the world? Get the hell out.

And what's so bullsh!t about it? Everyone was willfully blind to Melvin for so many years? I think it's more likely he's only just earning some recognition, but to each his own. Outside of his KO power and willingness to bang, this man was never much to brag about.

Well, he did shrug off Soti's take downs like nothing, but Soti has never been know for takedowns. Any of the top wrestlers would have a field day decision win, like Maynards fight with him. It's a tough division full of those kinds of guys.

Honestly i think he can beat most LW guys , but i believe solid wrestlers and better strikers will beat him.

Edgar
Maynard
Guillard
Sherk

etc those guys.

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back

Yes I agree.

At this point, considering he WOULD get a title shot, Frankie would just toy with him on the ground as long as he pleases to do so.

BUT, after a joining a US training camp like ATT, I could see him hang in there.
he's talented and I thing he quickly learns.

I'd say the UFC would love to give him a title shot in Germany. The media hate them over there so maybe having a local fighting for the belt may get them some positive coverage.

I really don't see him getting past Miller-Dunham-Guillard. So he won't fight for that belt in my eyes. Pettis would beat him too I guess.

Siver proved in his last fight that his TDD is fantastic and on the feet he is a nightmare to deal with. Is kickboxing is better then anyones at LW and I do believe he can hold a belt.

I don't think he Kickboxing is something special Nefl. I think people forget that he just lost to Ross Pearson in a striking battle and pretty clearly.
