Gilbert Melendez 'campaigning' for title shot following UFC 166 victory
The UFC lightweight division's self-proclaimed "uncrowned champion" Gilbert Melendez wants a chance to bring the belt where he feel it rightfully belongs: around his waist.

Chad Mendes eyes rematch with Jose Aldo but could see bantamweight move, as well
With four straight knockout wins under his belt, Chad Mendes believes he's just about due for a rematch with UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo. But he could see himself moving to 135 pounds, at some point, as well.
"That's actually something I have considered, and I definitely could," Mendes said when asked at a weekend Q&A event if he'd ever consider a move to bantamweight. "I'm not the biggest 145-pounder. I think I'm probably medium-sized for 145, but I could definitely make 135 if need be. But yeah, I'd like to make another run, hopefully win the belt at 145, defend it a few times and then depending on what my body says, if it allows it, I'd like to go down to 135, too."
