Benson Henderson Anticipates Rematch With Melendez In The Future
“At 155 the division is so stacked, so deep, the top five guys are like this far apart – they’re very close the top-5 guys, the top-10 guys at 155. Do I imagine I will be seeing Gil again? Yeah I’ll be seeing Gil again and he’ll want to beat the crap out of me, so, I’ll be seeing Gil again I don’t know if it’ll be an immediate rematch. If it is, it is. Cool. Sounds good to me let’s do it. Let’s run it back. But there’s a lot of guys at 155 that a pretty tough who all want to beat me up.”
