    Awsome fight, wonder when it'll be happening?

    They'll most likley put it on the Strikeforce PPV. With Zuffa powering the marketing, add in this fight on that card with Fedor/Hendo and it could pull some good numbers.

    This fight makes alot of sense, hope it all goes down without issues.

    little bit of a sidebar stemming from your comment. I really hope ppvs don't become a staple with Strikeforce now, 'cause I'm having a hard enough time trying to justify purchasing one UFC card a month. Throwing in ten Strikeforce cards a year will make me crazy.

    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.

    i know i dont see what could be so great about a strikeforce ppv because i dont see that many amazing matches that could be put together that are so much better then the current cards they put together that would warrant them putting together a ppv.

    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.

    It feels a little funny saying it, but I think Miller is a little overrated by the more hardcore fans, and your outlining the difference in competition levels pretty much sums it up. Even though Miller is in the promotion with the highest concentration of top ranked LWs, he hasn't really fought anyone who was top 10 when they were top 10s. The guys he fought who went on to be top 10s, they beat him.

    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.

    This fight is not happening.

    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.”
