Gilbert Melendez recently said he would like to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov, and the Dagestani fighter responded in apparent agreement.

This fight would be an awesome brawl, it could just as easily look like the Tibau fight but I think Melendez has much better movement and would turn it into a much better fight.

Awesome match up. Nurmagomedov is no joke.

I don't remember even seeing this. It must have happened long after I fell asleep.

I'd love to see this fight

Either guy wins and they're in title talks.

Would have to definitely take Gil. Though he's been improving, I don't even think Khabib beat Tibau a few fights back. Gil isn't a matchup made for Khabib to shine in at all.
