Strikeforce lightweight champ Gilbert ‘El Niño’ Melendez (19-2) has campaigned for a shot in the Octagon like some of his former Strikeforce compatriots such as Nick Diaz, Jake Shields, Cung Le, and Dan Henderson. Even UFC president Dana White had talked about getting him into the UFC “asap”.

That has yet to happen for Melendez but that doesn’t bother the Strikeforce champ who feels he is more popular now with all of the attention.

‘El Niño’ is set to defend his title next month on Dec. 17 against Jorge Masvidal at the upcoming Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Masvidal event in San Diego, California
