That's the problem, Melendez is hugely overrated, so Thompson losing to him repeatedly doesn't make Thompson a great fighter. This is a time-waster for Diaz as fighting Thompson does not get you back into contention.
BTW: Diaz and Maynard are 1-1, so I wouldn't say Gray is necessarily "better". I certainly wouldn't say Pettis or Melendez are. I'm not a Nate Diaz fan by any means but people are acting as if the SF lightweight scene was like the WEC's.
