What can we say about Gilbert Melendez’s performance on Saturday night that it didn’t say for itself? Gilbert completely dominated a perennial top ten lightweight in his win over Tatsuya Kawajiri.

It was one of the most impressive victories of Gilbert’s career, and it put the entire fight world on notice. Gilbert Melendez is the best Lightweight fighter in MMA.
