Gilbert Melendez Excited To Hear His Name Out Of “The Don’s” Mouth | UFC NEWS

Bay Area native, Gilbert Melendez has been on a mission to prove he is the best lightweight fighter in the world.

His time under the Stikeforce banner has proved that no one outside of the UFC can hang with him, but can he keep that streak going amongst the worlds best?

Recently UFC president Dana White stated that he may be next in line for a crack at Benson Henderson and if the Strikeforce champ has his way it will happen.

But who takes the fight in this possible champion vs champion match up?

    Cant wait to see this dude get beat up by the top 5 UFC Lightweights

  2. JohnJohn says:

    can he hang?

  3. Time To Wrestle says:

    Cesar Gracie’s last chance to have a UFC champion from his gym, unless Nick can make a miracle. Not.

    • Gebema says:

      Ronda Rousey is on Team Graciefighter and UFC Chmpion.
      Nick will fight GSP, even when he looses he will probably fight for a long time, same with Nate

      • Time To Wrestle says:

        Rousey was given a belt. Women’s MMA suck. Who actually wants to watch that shit. Nate and Nick will fight but neither will be champs.
        Shields is done, Nate is done, Nick will be done. Gilbert the last chance until they get other up and coming fighters. No comparison to Team Jackson. JuiJitsu gyms suck at producing champions, It needs to be wrestling based.

        • krafty11 says:

          you need to do some research. Black House is a jiu jitsu based gym, and they have Anderson Silva, Jose Aldo, Junior dos Santos(former champ).

      • Thom says:

        Rousey only trains there from time to time for like a year or so, she’s by no means a gracie fighter..

    Nick won’t show – and I’m not Sasquatch baronk9@mail

    fackin Site! fix this already.

  5. T says:

    Where you at BJ??

  6. Sasquatch says:

    “the Don’s mouth”… what a brown noser.

  7. dogfart says:

    rofl he can barely get passed a permanently injure Josh Thompson. how the fk is he gonna take on Benson who destroyed (i repeat) DESTROYED nate who was supposed to be the better fighter and apparently better than melendez?

    rofl bye bye melendez lets hope its a humbling experience for you and you lose the cocky attitude that the cesar gracie camp gives you

  8. SirSire22 says:

    Melendez is legit.. It’s about time the ufc gave him a contract.. He’s defended his title in strikeforce for fucking ages and deserves to get a chance in the ufc.. watch some of his fights and ponder on all you want cunts.. we’ll see what happens on the day he fights Bendo

  9. Mo says:

    Bendo will over power Melendez. Not impressed by Melendez. He’s beat who? umm…Thomson…Aoki..Guida…Masvidal….Not the elite of the elite if you ask me.
