Coker Shows Interest In Make Eddie Alvarez vs. Gilbert Melendez Happen | MMA NEWS

“With Gilbert, we’re going to take a look at what Pat Healy does next. We don’t know who he’s fighting next but we’re going to definitely put him in there with someone tough to see how he does. By the time Gilbert fights again, either we’re going to sign somebody to come in and fight him or we’re going to take another look at Pat and see if he’s the right guy… Come on over to Strikeforce, (Eddie Alvarez), let’s do the Melendez fight. That would be fantastic. I think that he’s a guy who is extremely talented that we would love to have in Strikeforce to fight Gilbert. It would be great. … If he is a free agent and he is really free of any contractual relations, make the call. Eddie, come on down, let’s put the Melendez fight together.”

In a recent interview with Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker touched on many topics, one of which was who is next for his lightweight champion.

The Alvarez vs. Melendez fight is one long talked about. With both men being the only two long time occupiers of the top 10 not under the UFC banner this clash has made sense for a long time. But can ZUFFA pull Alvarez into the fight or will they opt to put him straight into the UFC’s shark tank?

    Hell yay make this shit happen Coker shit would be such a good fight

    • GET RID OF FITCH ( forever) says:

      This won’t happen Rebney will never let Alverez out of his contract. UFC won’t pay big money for Alverez like they did Lombard. Chandler loss ruined any chances Alverez had of being a fighter UFC would pay more than he’s worth to get. Alverez is stuck cause his contract reads Bellator can match any offer UFC gives him and after losing Lombard no way in hell is Rebney going to sit back let one of his last big draws gets stolen out from under him. Rebney has Viacom as a partner now even if he can’t afford UFC offer they will pony up to SAVE FACE with fans and UFC to keep Alverez

      • JSTSCRP says:

        Alvarez stock dropped on his title loss, the Aoki win just keeps him relevant amongst the top lightweights not in the UFC. He would be a great addittion to the lightweight roster in Strikeforce & maybe make more exciting.

        • GET RID OF FITCH ( forever) says:

          Eddie thinks he’s worth more than he actually is. I think he would have gotten alot more money by strikeforce (pre-zuffa) and or the UFC if he hadn’t lost to Chandler. Aoki can’t compete against UFC top 10 regardless of where he is ranked. Melendez showed how to beat Aoki long before Alverez did which also didn’t help Alverez stock after his Aoki win.

    • The natural says:

      sign a one fight contract. Winner get in the UFC.

  2. Jigga says:

    Ahhh shit dope ass fight I think Alvarez would take it

    • GET RID OF FITCH ( forever) says:

      If Melendez fights same caliber as he did against thompsson he Alverez would for sure beat him

    • WrestlingRules says:

      Yah, but damn Alvarez waxes is frickin’ eyebrows. Damn how can you root for a fighter that waxes??

      • Serra-Longo says:

        You’re hating on him because of his hygiene schedule? that doesn’t make sense

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Hygiene? LMAO. I actually think he is a good fighter and fun to watch. But please, waxing your eyebrows for hygiene purposes? Now that is funny….

        • dynomania says:

          You’re a jackass. I bet you shave your balls, but only because your lady likes it. Quit hating.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          As only a hater could say…..I just think any guy that waxes is a bit of a narcissist and a pussy. Alvarez is a good fighter but maybe if he quit thinking about his un-ibrow he might be greater.

          do you wax too?

        • Jdiddy3844 says:

          Lmfao! Hating on jealousy!

      • Jdiddy3844 says:

        Cuz alot of woman luv that shit! Dont think he was thinking about u er any dude when he finely waxed the rough edges! Lol! Dudes a nasty fighter! Loved by all fans! Ufc will have him soon! Chandler loss er not he sells! How much does chandler sell? Its about money w the ufc above all!

        • WrestlingRules says:

          First it was about hygiene, now its about girls!! LMAO. Are you for real? He is a good fighter, but damn dude he frickin’ WAXES his eyebrows!!! How many guys in your gym wax their eyebrows?

        • GET RID OF FITCH ( forever) says:

          Florian waxes to just go back and look at his pictures when he was on TUF. I think he’s had otehr things done to as he looks completely different. Now all he has to do is find a head shrinker. dude has a monster sized melon

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Finally something you said I agree with!! now that was funny dude…..yah Florian was a real elite macho man fighter huh?

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Hey Bro I am still laughing, I can just picture that big Florian melon like if he leans over too much he’ll fall over on his head and wobble….

      • James Leonard says:

        I wax my eyebrows!! Nothin wrong wit a dude tryin to look good. I promise you waxing eyebrows and being clean cut will get you more puss then being a nasty fuckin scrub.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          You actually admit being a waxing metro?? What kind of homosexuals do you hang around with?

        • James Leonard says:

          Haha. You don’t even know what I would do to you!! I’d be happy to smash that dumbass little head in kid. I’d be willing to drive 250 miles to see if you would be man enough to step into my world. Time for your little immature ugly ass to wake up.. I bet your ugly as shit Mr. Wrestlingisgay!! Shit bag!!

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Now Now waxing metro-boy, simmer down. You and your waxing wouldn’t last 5 minutes in our gym. Do you also wax a brazilian??? lmao. Hey its ok to have homosexual friends.

        • James Leonard says:

          Haha. Last a minute in our gym. Your a little piece of shit that I would enjoy smacking around. Na I don’t get brazilans done but my girl does. If your ugly you don’t have to hate on us good lookin dudes to try and lift your sprit, or even try and use the stupid ass shit “you wouldn’t last a minute in my gym” please kid!! Address??

        • WrestlingRules says:

          I’ll tell you what, I’ll come to your gym and I’ll rough you up a bit waxing-boy and then you can come to our gym. You up for it waxing -boy? I know you get a brazilian. Just admit you’re a homosexual. Its ok.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          What happened to James? I thought maybe he was getting the best of me…I know he’s tough cuz he sure talks it….Hey James, where are you?

        • James Leonard says:

          Ya you must think its the worlds fault that your ugly ass can’t get a good lookin bitch so you can feel better about yourself. Instead you would rather wrestle sweaty dudes all day. Kid the first and only thing you would be able to do is try and shoot for my nut sack. Go out an get a bitch rather then double leggin dudes all day!! You wouldnt nor could you stand infront of me.. Address?? House or gym

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Oh James there you are…did you and your boooys need a little waxing?? I told you I will come to your gym. so where do you wax at I mean fight at?

        • James Leonard says:

          Tempe, AZ please come see me!! Haha I’ll have fun sprawling my nut on the back of your head since you like it so much you ugly bitch. I’ll cut your bushy scrub lookin eyebrows off. Like I said, I’ll drive within 250 miles of Tempe, Az just to have some fun with your young ugly ass. Let me know!! You could meet some others just like Eddie Alverez and I, you know!! Other metros that clean them selves up and that take the bitch that don’t want your ugly FAKE ass!!

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Let me spell it out to you waxing-boy….WHAT GYM in your town? Don’t want to tell me? Ok tell you what I will call Jackson’s gym and we’ll setup a fight. How does that work for you tough guy metro waxing-boy. Bring your homosexually friends with you…but please get those brows waxed before you come.

        • venitiri says:

          WrestlingRules – guaranteed your are some ugly ass dipshit that gets some nasty ass pussy. Nuff said.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          you’re right I am ugly, but damn I don’t wax my eyebrows… you?

        • James Leonard says:

          Ya. I think that one hit a nerve in the penis you never get to use. It’s all good NUT Wrestler.. You mad bro?! Bring your ugly ass to Tempe and just let me know when you get here ugly!! And fuck Jackson’s mma!!!

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Waxing-boy did you not say you would drive 250 miles?? Are you going to puss out on this forum? Just admit you are a homosexual, it’s ok

        • James Leonard says:

          Your not only ugly as shit, but your more stupid than you are ugly. Learn how to read I told you what city I’m in and how far I’m willing to go. What the fuck is your address so I can see if your close enough. I’ve ask 3 times now and all you still want to talk about is single legging my nuts. Ya, I’m positive your a child, you might want daddy there wit you kid!! He can get it after you.. FAKEASS SCRUB!!

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Waxing boy James, can you read. I am in Albuquerque. I’ll setup a day and time to meet at Jackson’s and we’ll see if I can possibly get by you. I doubt it cuz you talk so tough you must really be a badass. Naw, you just some frightened, tough talking waxing homosexual who doesn’t have the guts to back up his words. As I asked before, are you going to puss out on this forum? Just remember, it’s ok to be homosexual.

        • James Leonard says:

          Yup you are a certified dumb fuck little boy.. I wouldn’t want to lay a hand on you and make you just that much more of a dumbass. You really are allergic to life and even more important, you allergic to pussy… Your further than 250 miles so of your old enough to drive you would have to meet me in the middle, I’m sure your ugly ass wrestling boyfriend would like you to suck his dick on a road trip!! I don’t know what’s more restarted… You?! Or me letting a ugly smart guy like yourself already take up this much of my time. So come back at me with your “aww dude!! Look at you pussin out on this Internet fight forum that makes me feel like such a badass when I talk shit about pro fighters that could rip my asshole open whenever and however they wanted to.” but I guess it’s all good if your that hard behind a key board!!

        • WrestlingRules says:

          How about this….Listen you little filthy mouthed waxed cunt. Get your srcawny waxed body to Jackson’s gym and we’ll scrap or is 251 miles outside your pathetic little diatribe. You little homosexual. So now we ALL know you are PUSSY that waxes.

        • James Leonard says:

          How did I know?! Ya your a real smart guy!! Haha, go clean your ass up, get a dime, and cheer up.. You sound like you would get put to sleep real quick… Not I’m a cage either!!

        • WrestlingRules says:

          You waxing scrawny little shitbag. GET YOUR WAXED ass to Albuquerque and let’s do this you homosexual. Or are you a LIAR as well??? Tough talking waxed homosexual is all you are.

        • KZJ! says:

          Hahaha! Who is this and why did you use my name?

        • WrestlingRules says:

          He’s a tough talking homosexual waxing-boy. Hey James did you actually know this is a fight forum and NOT vanity fair or GQ?

        • GET RID OF FITCH ( forever) says:

          I wonder if they have to make aspecial stand for Florians UFC doll to support his very HUGE oversized melon? probably use a marble base like on a trophy to hold up his wobble head doll

      • GET RID OF FITCH ( forever) says:

        Yep i agree thats alittle much Alverez is UNI-BROW waxer. At least with Florian being a waxer he has an excuse with all the directors and producers wanting him to clean up for the camera for his commentating gig on FUEL channel

  3. HyLyfe808 says:

    Don’t do it Alverez! Don’t settle for a second rate promotion, go to the BIG show! If you are a free agent, it only makes sense to go to the UFC.

  4. T.DADDY says:

    both these guys wud get owned in the ufc

  5. Michael hamlin says:

    Let’s do it!!!

  6. B-rad says:

    i think eddie would give him a tough fight…hopefully gils last fight will end the non sense of people considering him the top LW in the world….i dont think hes even the top lightweight outside the ufc! i think Mike Chandler would stop melendez.. as well as 4 or 5 ufc guys

  7. Leo From New Jersey says:

    Great fight for strikeforce but i feel like even if it were to happen it won’t be for a while cause he has another fight under the bellator contract and who knows when that will be I think Melendez would take it though just cause Eddie has never shown a granite chin and I think melendez can put him away

  8. dynomania says:

    How can Nate claim Gil is the best? Bullshit. Nate would destroy Gil in a five round fight and Gil knows it. Gil didn’t even shout out to Nate until after the interview was over. Dick

  9. Thom says:

    Lol @ the whining e thugs above me.

  10. Semtex says:

    Funny how Rebney was trying to death to get Coker on the phone to make that fight early 2011. Now that fans have so less interest in Strikeforce he is like “Make the call, lets make that fight”. Granted co-promotion and singing a new fighter are very different, but Rebney was offering them to fight on Strikeforce, Coker just didn’t believe enough Melendez would win.

  11. Dick Diaz says:

    this is a fight that makes a lot of sense; very intriguing.

  12. jake says:

    Wow these ara the gayest posts ive ever read.
