And there's the small matter of soccer kicks should Melvin shrug off a TD or Sobral gets Mel down...
The fact its under the old PRIDE rule set is what makes this even more interesting. I'm all for soccer kicks and foot stomps. And if Melvin can learn some Greco-Roman technique who knows we could see some Vovchancyn-esque knees to a downed opponent!
