    Even though Melendez looked great (Obiya also showed top notch grappling skills + good chin) I think he definitely has to prove himself. Like Sakurai, and Hansen.

    Or else he might become like Luiz Azeredo, who was exciting as hell to watch but lost twice (or three times?) to Gomi because I think that title match was made too quickly.

    By the way I love watching Luiz Azeredo.

    Next title contender can't be Melendez; either Ishida or Aurelio.

    I would like to see this fight. Melendez is a future champ I think. Just an animal on the ground and standing.

    I like that scenerio. I think Ishida would take Aurelio again. He just seems to do well against BJJ guys. It's really hard to sub him and he has some really good GnP.

    Melendez looked very good vs Obiya. He was like a machine. He just kept charging him, knocking him down, taking him down, and ground and pounding him. Obiya is a solid up and coming fighter too. I think Gomi might underestimate Melendez a little. It would definitely be a good fight IMO.

    I will pay whatever amount of money to see Melendez and Gomi go at it . . .hell, a flight to Japan would almost be worth seeing that in my opinion.

    I think Aurelio should defiently have first crack at the Title. I mean if u beat the Champ in a "Non-title" match (should never happen outside of a tourny but thats a whole nother thread) doesnt that make you number 1 contender? If not I dunno what more you could do to get a shot.
