Gilbert Melendez has signed to fight Tatsuya Kawajiri, the #3 ranked lightweight in the world, on Pride’s Shockwave. Tonight he’s on MMAWeekly Radio at 6pm PST / 9pm EST.
Holding the #10 position in MMAWeekly’s Top Ten rankings, Melendez is a deserving fighter himself. A win over Kawajiri would boost his undefeated record to 12-0. Already possessing an exciting, all out style, a win over Kawajiri would also launch Melendez into the upper stratosphere of the division.
Tonight, Melendez joins Damon and Jeff on MMAWeekly Radio’s SoundOff to discuss the fight with Kawajiri, how his recent injury is healing up, and where his career is headed.
