Gilbert Melendez

Gilbert Melendez won the”interim” Strikeforce lightweight title on Saturday night by dispatching of Rodrigo Damm with strikes. Unfortunately for Melendez, it wasn’t Josh Thomson who was standing across the cage.

“Josh is the true champion but I definitely want to fight him again,” Melendez said following his victory.

After the dominating performance against Damm, many were left asking why Melendez didn’t fight that way when he was easily outpointed by Thomson back in June.

When Strikeforce is able to finally re-schedule the Thomson vs. Melendez fight, lets hope that it’s this past Saturday night’s Melendez who shows up.
