At a press conference in support of "Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Masvidal," Gilbert Melendez notes Frankie Edgar did a good job defending his belt at UFC 136.

But he scrunches his face a bit in a way that says there's something else on his mind.

The truth, found beside the podium after the gathering, is that he's salivating at a chance to beat the UFC champ.

"If you can find that target, it looks like you could put him on the ground," Melendez told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "We need someone to find that target more than once, and I think I could find that target."

At the moment, his thoughts are academic. A UFC title shot is not next. What's next is a defense of his Strikeforce belt, and it could be the toughest fight of his life.
