Gilbert Melendez?

"El Nino" sounds like he's down, but "Semtex" doesn't think he'll get much love from the media according to his recent post on The Underground:

Gilbert Melendez has called me out. Says he'll fight at 170lbs. I'm down, but i know i will get negative feedback from the MMA Media for fighting a Lightweight...again, despite having KO/TKO'd 2 middleweights in my past 3 fights (Acacio and Smith). So still we have a problem, what i want is another fight in between fighting Diaz, a fight that makes sense and qualifies me, for fighting for the Strikeforce WW title.

So how about it Maniacs? Which fight "qualifies" Daley for a welterweight title shot?
