Ben Henderson vs. Gilbert Melendez for the UFC Lightweight Championship
God I hope not, Melendez hasn't even fought anyone in the UFC how the f**k does he deserve to fight for a championship??
I think it has a lot to do with the fact that the event is planned to be held in San Jose, basically Gil's stomping ground.
I actually thought that Eddie Alvarez was gonna get the first shot. They like the idea of a Champion vs. Champion bout, but if the Melendez that fought Josh Thomson the last time shows up, he has absolutely no shot against Ben. As a matter of fact, I think the best Gil Melendez still can't stop Ben Henderson.
