Gilbert Melendez Calls Out Eddie Alvarez

Gilbert Melendez

“I look down at the Top 10, I look at the line up and I see a lot of guys matched up and I see a lot of names that I’d like to fight. The one name that stands out big time to me, this is a person, who probably doesn’t like me much and sometimes it’s mutual. But, I want to fight him, not because of that, it’s not personal, but because I respect him much and I think he’s a great fighter and we’ve been wanting to fight each other for a long time and it’s a great matchup. So, if Eddie Alvarez is out there and he’s open to fight me, and there would be no better place than to do it in Mexico City. If UFC can make that happen and Eddie wants it, that’s the next fight for me.”

Will this fight PLEASE finally happen. It’s a battle of two-former lightweight champions, looking to settle a beef that is no longer halted by promotional boundaries.

You know you want it too!
