Sanchez better not come in like he did last fight, Melendez will eat him up badly if he does.

So weird, I was thinking this morning about Melendez and who should face next and I thought Diego would be good except I guessed it would be at UFC 165

I definitely think this will be a fun fight, my guess is Melendez by decision.

Melendez ruins Sanchez, even on Diego's best day. This should be one fight Diego loses and doesn'tget the decision.

This card is looking very good already. This should be 3 rounds of Melendez getting the better of the standup. It'll be entertaining though.

I really like both fighters but I want Melendez to win so hes one step closer to getting back what was robbed from him

I also see a long night for Diego, but no doubt this will be a violent, bloody war....As always seems to be the case with Diego.
