Melendez: Edgar is amazing, but not untouchable


“I thought it was an amazing fight,” Melendez told’s Megan Olivi. “Frankie's tough. He's shown it again and again. But Gray kind of laid out a blueprint for how to beat Frankie for one round, so now if someone could figure out how to keep it up for two, three, four, five, I think they'll possibly be successful.

“He's an amazing fighter and I think he'll have the belt for a while, but there is no one that you feel can't be dethroned or that is unbeatable or anyone you fear, at least in my opinion. I think he's a great fighter, but, again, I don't (label) him untouchable.”

Melendez has thought extensively about a match up with Edgar, which is a fight that seems all but inevitable at this point in time. And if that fight should take place in the near future, Melendez says that he would make Edgar fight him, stating that “there would be no running.”

Pretty obvious that he isn't untouchable the way Maynard dinged him up in their series of fights, but Frankie is the most interesting/and or entertaining when he gets hit.
