    Not sure if this will happen.
    But I will for one say that Miller is a bad dude. He matches very well with almost any lightweight. I would take Miller in this by decision.
    When the sounds of violence are heard, what side will you be on...

    Ya that would be a great fight, id take melendez by decision. Either winning that fight, CLEARLY deserves a title shot.

    I hope this is true! Both guys look like they are peaking in terms of fighting skill, and both looked awesome in their last fights.

    I would have to give a slight edge to Miller though. His striking is better at this point (though Gilbert's is improving rapidly), he's a good enough wrestler to keep it standing, and I think his BJJ is a little more polished. Both have good BJJ training, but I just think Miller is more likely to pull a submission off.

    Miller by close decision, FOTN for sure.

    this would be a good fight.

    it would also be epic in a ufc fighter taking on a strikeforce fighter. it will be interesting to see the details. you know under which banner, is it a title fight, what does the winner get, is there co promotion ect....

    Miller can win this fight. Not sure Melendez can. What will he do, out-wrestle Jim? Submit him? I don't see that happening.

    Then again, I'm not picking against Miller until he gets his title shot. Maybe if he was facing Penn, but he isn't a lightweight right now.

    Great fight if it happens. I would take Gil by dec. I would be rooting for Miller though.

    No matter what happens, I just want to see Gilbert placed against some top competition so he can back up all the bark. His performance against Kawajiri was impressive.

    Miller VS Melendez would be a hell of a fight until the end. I would definitely love to see that fight and I would be going with Miller, of course.

    i find this extremely odd, especially considering franklin mcneil suggested it on mma live. i don't know about you guys, but to me, the odds of zuffa brass even listening to what mcneil had to say, let alone considering it are pretty low.

    edit: loretta cunt...always wanted to say that.
