    i could see melendez beating kawajiri...his pace and intensity is something kawajiri might not be used to

    I wish they would just have him fight Aoki..unless we get to see Aoki fight Gomi or something

    I think Aoki could school Gomi on the ground, but his wrestling is weak and he has to get to the ground to sub him...I'd still like to see the match though

    no he probably will...kawajiri is way better than aoki though imo...i wonder if melendez will take kawajiri down...i think kawajiri is pretty much better skill wise at everything...but he can't let melendez control the pace like his fight vs buscape

    I'm not really a Kawajiri fan but does anyone know where I can buy a "CRUSHER" jersey that he wore to Shooto?

    plus aoki doesn't need to get people to the ground, he'll just throw a flying submission out there :rofl:
