Gilbert Melendez wants to avenge Nate Diaz's loss to Benson Henderson

I don't see how Melendez beats Bendo, I really don't. Look at Melendez last fight against Thompson. He was taken down at will and dominated on the ground in the later rounds.

Bendo is way bigger than Thompson and probably has better wrestling. Melendez won't stand a chance against the champion. I would much rather see him fight Alvarez from Bellator when ever they get his deal done and finally see that match up.

    Gilbert wants to pretend he is relevant by using Nate's lose.

    Everywhere it is, Bendo beats him. Pointless to even make the match.

    Yep, Bendo dominates him just like Nate

    Haaaaaahahahha Gilbert couldnt avenge himself out of a wet paper bag. This guy is a friggin delusional idiot and im counting the days until he joins the big leagues to get tooled by 90% of the LW division. Hes making a great case for my most hated fighter.

    who cares about milendez? i mean really, he goes out and hellbows some nobody in strikeforce over a year ago and suddenly he deserves a spot in the ufc!? if you even want to be mentioned in the same breath as diego, cerrone, diaz, makdessi, etc. he needs to at least beat josh thompson decisively first; josh had a broken hand in that fight and still won arguably. melendez is the most overrated hype job since kid yammato and look how that turned out.
    bendo could finish this kid with his eyes closed and hands + feet tied behind his back.

    LOL at all the fuggers in here saying Melendez doesn't stand a chance! Melendez dominated Guida more than Bendo did and that was a 5 round fight! He would stuff all of Bendo's shoots, cause let's be honest, Bendo's best takedowns are from the clinch. Bendo has better kicks, but Melendez has better boxing and both push the pace big time with ridiculous cardio. I see Bendo winning, but it'd be a very close fight, don't get your panty's in a twist if Melendez wins, cause he probably could win B-)

    hahaha what? you mean tatsuya kawajiri right? i had to look him up on wikipedia, his biggest wins are a decision over yves that happened a decade ago, a decision over josh thompson, and another decision over omigawa LOL. he could never fight his way into the ufc, scored a couple decisions over japanese cans, and you really just called him 'the best LW of all time' obvious troll is obvious to say the least.

    They need to do like they did with Lombard and have him fight a top guy before he gets a title shot. Jim Miller would make sense. Even someone like Guillard, Varner, or Lauzon would help to better gauge his place in the LW picture in the UFC.
    WAR Wand, Hendo, Couture, Fedor, Lytle, Cro Cop, Frye, Sakuraba, Bas, Kharitonov, Barnett, Minowaman, Belfort, Sonnen, Zombie, Franklin, Thomson, Swanson, Wineland, Texeira, Belcher, Miller brothers, Cerrone, Palhares, Arlovski, Ludwig, Yamamoto, Barry, Hendricks, Benavidez, Munoz, Stephens, Jacare, Sanchez, Big Nog, Hunt, Maia, Brown, Lawler, Buentello, Zingano!!!

  • With Cerrone and Pettis fighting there's not really anyone to face Bendo except for Melendez. Even if Melendez loses that just proves how awesome a fighter Bendo is. Just because you lose to the **** UFC champ doesn't mean you suck

    How can you talk about his biggest if you didn't even have a clue who's Tatsuya Kawajiri ?

    Normally I would agree, it is great when guys talk themselves up and then get dumped back down to reality, but the LW division is absolutely stacked right now and that would just hold everything up. Not fair on Cerrone, Pettis, Maynard, Miller.

    I suppose you're right.

    Although, Pettis should be the only of those fighters seriously in consideration for a shot, and that's if he beats Cerrone.

    I suppose a good argument could be made for Miller, but I believe he still needs another win or two.

    Melendez is more deserving than Cerrone and Maynard IMO.

    Don't get me wrong, they're probably better than Melendez, but they need a streak of impressive wins to qualify for a shot after the sort of losses they were victims to.

    Melendez deserves to be in the UFC. Maybe not immediately for a title shot but should be in there. He's defiantly shown he can hang with the best outside the UFC. Why not see what he can do in there? In the already talent filled division? Maynard v Melendez would be a great fight

    Bendo would dominate Melendez, he should fight loser of Cerrone vs Pettis, Maynard or Alvarez his last fight wasn't that impressive to warrant a shot.
    Bet Record- 76-43
