Has Gilbert Melendez been the best lightweight in the world all along? While he was the Strikeforce lightweight champion, Melendez's competition was thin.

Where does Daniel Cormier rank among the best heavyweights? He knocked out Antonio Silva and beat Josh Barnett. In fact, Cormier has beaten every fighter put in front of him, putting together a record of 11-0. This will be his first time fighting in the UFC, taking on Frank Mir, who hasn't fought since he lost to Junior dos Santos in May of 2012. Will Cormier's unbeaten streak continue?
Who will stay unbeaten? Cormier, Lorenz Larkin, Myles Jury and Hugo Viana are all undefeated. Which fighter will keep his 0?
Coming off short notice, will Jordan Mein's white hot win streak continue? Unlike most of the Strikeforce fighters on Saturday's card, Mein already made his UFC debut. He beat Dan Miller with a first-round TKO at UFC 158, but he stepped in for an injured Dan Hardy for a bout with Matt Brown. It's not an easy fight to take on short notice, but we'll see if Mein can win his fourth straight.
Will Strikeforce win the day? Nine of Saturday's bouts pit fighters with Strikeforce backgrounds against UFC mainstays. Since Strikeforce fighters started moving to the UFC, they have been impressive. However, will they be able to take Saturday's dual meet?
