“The reason why it would be welcome to the lightweight division is it would make things interesting. I would love to lock horns with this guy, I’d be up for that. I think he has some pretty good size for his weight class. He’s a big boy. I think he can carry the weight and hang with the muscle at 155 for his size. I don’t know if he’s ready for the top level at 155, but I believe he has the size to go into it. He’s a young kid and he’s only going to get better. I could see him doing it. If someone believes in themselves that much, it’s always a possibility. If I got offered the fight, would I take it? Absolutely.”

Top UFC lightweight fighter, Gilbert Melendez tells FOX Sports that he would “absolutely” take a scrap with featherweight star, Conor McGregor.
