If this happens I see Melendez winning via decision. He's got good enough BJJ to stay out of trouble and has better striking than Miller. Melendez has also beaten much better competition as of late. Aoki & Kawajiri > Kamal, Oliveira, & Tibau.
“Discussion is an exchange of knowledge; an argument an exchange of ignorance.”
its bad enough the wec is gone and the ufc did not live up to there promise of more free shows itd suck ass if the same happened to strikeforce.
Personally I think Melendez is the better boxer, and grappling they are pretty close, Miller has better subs but if Aoki can't even get Melendez in a bad spot I don't think Miller will do much better.

Coker: No Discussion of Miller-Melendez Title Fight
Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said Monday that a rumored matchup between Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez and UFC contender Jim Miller is just that: a rumor.
“There’s going to be a lot of rumors flying back and forth, around fights and what’s going to happen, but they’re not based on fact,” Coker said during a “Savage Dog Show” interview. “They’re just based on rumors and people just trying to start a story or keep legs on the story. The truth is there has not been any dialogue on that.”
However, Coker does believe his champion will eventually meet opposition from the UFC.
“Who knows when those other fights will happen,” Coker said, “but I think that Gilbert will be able to hold his own and prove to the world that he is the number one fighter in the world.”
And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus
