Henderson will be prepared, but he's not an overwhelming fighter. Melendez will have his chances.

Gilbert isn't much better than Miller he will get dominated more often than not during the fight.

I think Henderson controls Melendez for five rounds much like hes done to most of his other opponents. Melendez will have a few moments in the fight but overall I'm expecting it to be a clear win for Henderson.

Agree. Melendez is no doubt a good lightweight. But Henderson (at least in my opinion) is on another level.

Henderson take this via UD.

melendez is about to find out he isn't even close to being as good as he has claimed to be. Bendo is a better wrestler a far better striker and just as good a grappler IMO
