Strikeforce lightweight champ and number one contender for the UFC belt Gilbert Melendez travels to The Ultimate Insider studios to shoot a piece for this weeks show. The show airs Thursdays after UFC Tonight. Will be great for UFC fans to get a closer look at Melendez who for years has felt like he is the best lightweight in the world. Thing to love about “El Nino” is he doesn’t want to talk about being the best but wants the chance to prove it, and on April 2oth he finally gets that chance. Benson Henderson will be a tough match up for Gil though which should make for a very entertaining fight.

As Strikeforce’s two biggest male superstars get set to make their big league debuts, their new bosses are preparing to promote their upcoming scraps. The first step in that direction was to release the official event poster for “UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Melendez.”
An unofficial lightweight title unification bout between UFC champ Benson Henderson and former Strikeforce champion...
Come April 20th, there will be no less than six fights that pit UFC vets against former Strikeforce fighters making their UFC debut. While the official event poster may look like a knock off of about 50 or 60 UFC posters before it, on paper, the fight card, as it stands today... it looks very healthy. Check it out below:
