    Default Henderson vs. Melendez being targeted for UFC on Fox 7

    Reports have surfaced that Melendez will get an immediate shot at Henderson. It's also reported that the event would likely take place at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, an arena Melendez is all too familiar with.

    Also do you think that this could play a factor in the whole Eddie Alvarez situation?

    I think the whole UFC on FOX 7 card should be nothing but StrikeForce vs UFC match-ups. Have a main card of something like:

    LW TITLE - Ben Henderson (c) vs Gil Melendez
    HW - Frank Mir vs Daniel Cormier
    MW - Ronaldo Souza vs Costa Phillipou
    LHW - Mauricio Rua vs Gegard Mousasi

    That's a good card.

    Yeah gotta agree, good card and good idea. Shogun vs Mousasi is a naughty little fight, the UFC has got to make it happen.
    As for Melendez getting a shot straight away, I have no problem with this! He is a long standing champion, has a long unbeaten run and has beat some good fighters.

    Another UFC vs. Strikeforce fight that i think could make sense, depending on the result of Belfort vs. Bisping, is Chris Weidman vs. Luke Rockhold.

    Should Bisping beat Belfort he gets Silva and IMO Weidman vs. Rockhold is the perfect number one contenders fight should that happen.

    I don't think the UFC is thrilled at having Boetsch and Phillipou so near the top of the MW division, so I think they should give those two to Rockhold and Souza in their UFC debuts. Cause I think both SF guys would beat them and then it moves Rockhold/Souza up high in the MW division immediately and it drops Boetsch and Phillipou down.
