The #1 Lightweight in the World

My buddies over at Fight! Magazine, Rick Lee and Danny Acosta, put together a great little video of the #1 LW in the World, Gilbert Melendez.
Check it out.

1 in the world....


yeah okay.

Hes not #1 and he wont be unless he fights some top competition Phone Post

His first fight with Kawajiri was epic, but if he steamrolls Kawajiri, (SF is supposedly trying to put a 2nd fight together) and finds a way to beat Eddie Alvarez, he can make a claim for the spot.

Good thing he beat aoki I guess that makes him number 1.... Phone Post

Gil is easily the #1 lightweight

In strikeforce Phone Post

Aoki was #2 when they fought. Aoki, Thomson, Guida, not top competition? Crazy.

him nd bj are the only lw's to be ranked top 5 p4p in the last 5 years. ppl forget how highly he was regarded before he lost...well he avenged the loses and and beat aoki 50-45. best lw imo.

No, most people commenting have absolutely no idea how highly regarded he was. 

 

best LW my ass. if he had 3 fights in the UFC he wouldnt even be considered top 5 anymore.

Aoki should never have been #2 and Gil is good but saying he is the best lw is insane there are no fights for him in strikeforce he should have gone to the ufc and fought people like maynard pettis edgar gomi gsot florian penn Phone Post

Are they really your buddies or are you just trying to namedrop?

yep. strikeforce is becoming the new pride.

Melendez still needs to give Aoki a rematch...in Japan. That was the deal.

He also needs to be in the UFC or Bellator. Strikefarce just doesn't cut it. Their talent pools are so shallow.

Maybe top 5? Maybe?

drewsiph - #1 in the world....


yeah okay.


209... it's a lifestyle.

I'll give him somewhere in the top 10 but no way #1 Phone Post
