    Default Josh Thomson vs. Gil Melendez SPOILER

    A stunning domination from Thomson. I didn't see one round that you could conceivably score for Gilbert. He was very one dimensional in his striking, and he got outstruck, outwrestled, and outgrappled on the ground. Thomson took him down multiple times, I think at least one in every round. He took his back several times and was damn close to finishing him with a RNC in the 3rd. Wow. The Punk is your new Strikeforce LW champ with all 3 judges scoring it 50-45.

    Awesome performance by Thomson. His shoulder did not cause a problem for him at all, even after he won the first two rounds I was expecting him to start to fade a bit.

    Man was a I wrong, not only did he have the edge in the wrestling, striking, and grappling but he was the better athlete and he seemed to want it more and just physically dominated Melendez.

    Phenomenal job by Thompson, the boys down at AKA did a great job getting him ready for this one.

    I couldn't agree more. What a display by Thompson. I was also surprised about how he consistantly beat Melendez to the punch. Those low leg kicks were a great weapon as well. All 5 rounds are posted here:

    Thanks for putting spoiler in the title, but to my disappointment, but tivo cutout right as that fight started - and I don't see it scheduled again.

    Wonder why the UFC let him get away. When he lost to Edwards, many (including myself) considered Edwards to be the best and I thought Thompson was winning until Yves landed that lucky high kick

    thanks - I will. I got screwed the same way on the Pulver - Faber fight (cut off after 2 rounds).

    Young CL, you need to set your Tivo so that it records 30 minutes or an hour past the scheduled viewing time.

    LOL - I thought this was on Showtime where it does it automatically (I subscribe to it and I have it go way over), but instead it was on HDnet and since they show so many events, I don't have it going way over so it doesn't clog my HDR

    I had to get up early for a wedding, oddly enough. Otherwise I would have stayed up and watched it. I was out of town for the WEC and honestly, kind of forgot about that one for the most part (was the night after the Kimbo fight). Not sure why they haven't replayed either yet.
