Melendez Changes Tune: Open To Fourth Fight With Thomson | MMA NEWS


“I’m definitely down for it. I’d be up for it. I’m not looking forward to it right away, but I’m definitely not scared of it. I don’t think it was my best performance. I think Thomson’s a tough guy, I think we know each other well. It was a close fight and San Jose’s his town, and they were 0-for-3 that night until Cormier came in. It’s a little hard because I usually don’t get booed and I put my life on the line out there. It kind of hurt, but it is what it is. I’m just moving forward, If I have to fight him again, if he keeps winning, it is what it is.”

In an interview with MMAFighting.com, Strikeforce lightweight champion, Gilbert Melendez displayed a change of heart when the topic of a fourth bout with Josh Thomson came up.

In their last meeting, many thought Thomson deserved the judges decision, but Gilbert is still the champ. Strikeforce officials and the Thomson camp wanted to book an immediate rematch, which would have served as the fourth meeting between the two, but Melendez refused the fight and is now set to face Pat Healy later this month.
