Booking Alert: Gilbert Melendez Taking on Diego Sanchez at UFC 166

(Listen to Stephan Bonnar‘s last line to Diego Sanchez in this classic TUF: 1 clip and tell us the guy doesn’t belong in the UFC Hall of Fame.)

The UFC 166: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3 card (October 19th, Houston) is starting to fill out. In addition to the heavyweight title fight rubber-match and the Lombard vs. Marquardt welterweight bout, a fight between former #1 lightweight contenders Gilbert Melendez and Diego Sanchez is the latest booking to be confirmed for the fall event at the Toyota Center.

Melendez is coming off of a razor-thin decision loss to champion Benson Henderson at UFC on FOX 7. Despite the ‘L’ on his record, the former Strikeforce champion lived up to the hype in his UFC debut and looks to get back into title contention ASAP by facing Sanchez.

“The Dream” has won three out of his last four bouts, including his victorious return to the lightweight division this past March when he earned a decision over Takanori Gomi. Melendez looked better than ever in his last bout, but Sanchez has a tendency to make any fight a competitive scrap…most of the time, at least. Who do you pick in this one, ‘Taters?

- Elias Cepeda

Melendez should take this, better rounded, better hands. Sanchez is pretty durable but that's mainly because he has no brain.

I think Melendez will take this. By decision, of course.
