    As though it would have made a difference.

    How fucked are the LW rankings now. Alvarez's stock has to look less impressive now too.

    Off the top of my head I think...
    1) Edgar
    2) Penn
    3) Florian
    4) Melendez
    5) Maynard
    ?
    That's all I can come up with quickly, and it looks fucked up to me. I got no idea how to rank that division.

    I wonder what will be the next thing we hear of Aoki now that MMA in Japan is over.

    Does anyone know what Aoki and Melendez weighed during the fight? It looked like Melendez had a significant size and strength advantage.

    Shorter and pudgy is a size advantage?

    Damn, while Dream was far from Pride, I'm sad to see it go. Butt Scoot Kill MMA in Japan. Kind of a sad day.

    I want to find the article, but I read Aoki came in walking 10ish lbs ligther than melendez.

    Aoki is an idiot though. Not training in a cage for the fight.

    That didn't seem to hurt him as much as not being able to engage Melendez standing at all ever

    That would surprise me a lot given that Aoki has fought at 170. Melendez may have as well but there wasn't a time when I was watching the fight and thought Melendez was bigger.

    Russ, you're smarter than thinking a picture from that angle gives any indication of actual heights. For what it is worth (not much either) Aoki is generally listed as being taller too.

    Of course we might as well measure Aoki's height while he's sitting on his ass.
