melendez won that fight, no bs, fair and square!
it was a really close fight but melendez won the 1, 2 and 5. he put it on benson for the first 2 rds. had him backpedaling
him for 3 rds. gil was controlling the pace and dictating where the fight takes place at and that was standing. gil was making it strictly a boxing match, all bensons shot were getting shrugged off and gil was outboxing benson for the majority of the fight even rocking him multiple times, you could see it in benson face the frustration he had of not getting the TD . all benson did was land a few kicks and a couple of TD's when gil slipped but he immediately got back up with minimal damage. Gil won that match based on aggression, octagon control and boxing damage.
punches to face > kicks to body/legs.
stuffing Takedowns > getting a pos. off a slip.
putting pressure/aggressive > backpedaling.
whos with me for a immediate rematch?
