Melendez wants Bendo next

Quote:
"I want to fight Benson Henderson," Melendez told Bleacher Report. "I think a champion versus champion fight makes absolute sense right now. I think we already know how things are going to work out between Benson Henderson and a lot of other lightweight fighters in the UFC, but I'm that mystery fighter. No one really knows how I'm going to matchup with anyone. I have been around for a long time and have been the top lightweight in the world before Benson or any of these other guys.

"I think I have a lot of answers for his style. Sometimes he fights a wrestler like Guida who doesn't have great hands and sometimes he fights strikers who can't really wrestle. Look his fights against "Cowboy" Cerrone back in the day or even Pettis. I have that wrestling pedigree where he ain't taking me down and I'll be stuffing some shots. I'm not backing away and I'll be dropping some bombs. I'm not an easy guy to stand with. I have a lot of power and I'm not running away from kicks. I don't run away from anything. I hold my ground. I'll be coming for him and anything he dishes out I'll be answering back twice as hard.

"I think everyone would be really excited for this matchup and I guarantee it would be a great fight. We can do it in the Octagon or the Strikeforce cage -- it doesn't matter to me. Henderson is the fight I want and let's make it happen."

Interesting fight, still see Bendo winning though

I think Gilbert is pretty overrated TBH. He will be a top 10 LW in the UFC but I doubt he'll ever contend for the title if he doesn't receive an immediate title shot upon entering the UFC.

He won't fight Nate, can't see him beating Pettis, Maynard or Jim Miller. Cerrone is a toss up.

He could lose if he gets matched up with guys like Nurmagomedov, Lauzon, TJ Grant, Dos Anjos, even Tibau and Volkmann and it's not as if the majority of MMA fans really know much about those guys (aside from Lauzon), so a loss to any of those guys would really damage Gilbert's career and the likelihood if him losing to these guys really isn't as small as some may think.

Melendez is way over-hyped in my opinion. I really don't see him beating any top competition in the UFC. His two biggest wins were against Clay Guida and Josh Thompson. And he lost his first fight to Thompson unanimously. He doesn't deserve a title shot right off the rip and really should prove himself before he's given a title shop.

I really, really need to see Gil against some UFC competition before i'm sold. If i remember correctly, i booked that last Thompson fight a draw.

Don't care for this fight anymore, the Thompson fight really hurt his stock.

Gil and Chandler would both smash him.

Who cares about Gil, where the bloody hell is Eddie Alvarez? Hurry up and sign him for crying out loud.

I'd love to either guy vs Bendo. Gil and Chandler could both win that fight.

Chandler would tear Ben apart for sure, he's already the best of the three champions and he's far from a finished package.

Chandler is a savage, there's no doubt about that. I really, really want to see Alvarez/Chandler 2. 155 has so much talent. Chandler, Alvarez and Gil all under the same roof would be amazing.
