Gilbert Melendez StrikeforceDid Gilbert Melendez hope to finish the fight Saturday night at Strikeforce: Barnett vs. Cormier in San Jose, Calif.?

You know it.

Was he disappointed that he didn’t?

Absolutely.

But despite people thinking he can just roll over everyone that Strikeforce throws at him have to realize, guys like Josh Thomson are good, tough fighters. There are no “gimmees.”

Check out what Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez had to say at Saturday night’s post-fight press conference following his split decision victory over Josh Thomson…

    I think Melendez should be called “the punk”

    I think he lost, but like they say…”to be the champ, you have to beat the champ” It does show that he needs to be in Strikeforce, top 10 UFC guys would destroy him. Not sure why people think he is the #1 155 lbs guy. He couldn’t beat Melvin Guillard. I would have liked for BJ Penn to have taken that fight and destroyed “El Nino”
