i think melvin should get a shot just not yet. give him like two more fights. right now i think joe stevenson should be next depending on how he does in his next fight. then spencer then melvin.Matt_Serra_Fan said:I hope Guillard will get it because he'd put up the best fight but Spencer Fisher is also coming up and should maybe get a title shot if he beats someone with a name.
Stevenson has a W over Yves Edwards, which is more impressive than anything Guillard has shown.hutchykurt said:Truthfully, Joe Stevenson hasn't impressed me; they made him seem like some sort of phenom and he isn't. Jens Pulver was sloppy. Spencer Fisher and Melvin G. are exciting but they need more fights before they go for a belt.
Yeah Edwards is a way better fighter than anyone Melvin's faced. Guillard really hasnt proven anything yet except that he's exciting.Rambler14 said:Stevenson has a W over Yves Edwards, which is more impressive than anything Guillard has shown.
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.
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.hutchykurt said: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.
