Cesar Gracie Issues Warning: “Gilbert Melendez won’t be punked by Dana White”

There has been a lot of tension floating around about Gilbert Melendez and what his future has in store concerning his fighting home.

UFC officials came out earlier in the week saying they were done with Melendez negotiations and with news that Gil has now reached a monetary agreement with Bellator, Cesar Gracie is starting to speak up.

@GilbertMelendez won’t be punked by @danawhite if not careful our other guys will be leaving @ufc for @BellatorMMA

— Cesar Gracie (@CesarGracieBJJ)

It’ll be interesting to see how this all works out considering Melendez isn’t just any other lightweight.

    The UFC is fucking up. Gilbert Melendez ia not just another fighter. If they can pay Melendez what he wants a lot of other guys are going to take notice.

  2. truth says:

    I hope they do all leave. I’d be fine not having to see or hear from any of them anymore

  3. rukahs says:

    is that supposed to be a scary attack at dana ? “our fighters will leave”…..not a single fuck given either day. ufc has no problems getting quality fighters if they really want.

    • Tincat says:

      Ya, quality fighters like Patrick Cummings (see what I just did there?) ;)

    • flashwins says:

      right. they bought strikeforce because because that camp was making NOISE. get yourself together dipstick

      • rukahs says:

        right, ufc saved about 5 fighters career by buying strikeforce. and now the other 17 is kicked out / didnt get contracts. get ur self some knowledge before u talk “flashwins” (prolly a gamer or something, smh).

        • flashwins says:

          Riiight. Just like the UFC ‘saved’ the careers of guys like Shogun, Rampage and Hendo when the UFC bought Pride. You give the org too much credit, and the fighters not enough

  4. K3vbot says:

    All stay or take Shields with you

  5. Ed Olsen says:

    ED OLSEN Fuck dana he is a cheap mf and wont pay the fighters a decent amount even when the ufc can afford it . I think they need a fighters union
