5 UFC Lightweights Who Should Move to Strikeforce

After easily winning a decision over Jorge Masvidal at last weekend's Strikeforce event, Gilbert Melendez called for the UFC to bring him a worthy opponent.

While Melendez later commented saying it was mostly post-fight adrenaline that fueled the comments, one look at the Strikeforce lightweight roster shows that he has a reason to gripe.

There is literally no one left to give Melendez a decent fight, and if the UFC wants their sister promotion to be taken seriously, they need to share a little bit of talent.

The fighters on this list are all established UFC winners, but for some reason or another none of them are currently in line for a UFC title shot anytime soon, and their presence would be huge in Strikeforce.

All of these guys would give Melendez a decent fight, and whether they won or lost, Strikeforce would have a decent champion for the future.
