Melendez happy to call UFC his home


"A lot of mixed emotions with Strikeforce going down. I fought in the very first MMA Strikeforce card, I hold a lot of records there, I'm the champ there and I really appreciate what Scott Coker's done.

But, you know, also a new chapter in my life and it looks like my next fight will be in the UFC and that is exciting for me as well. So, I am pretty excited."

Gil vs Bendo is stylistically an awesome fight. Let's see if it will be on Fox in San Jose or Memorial Day weekend in Vegas.

It's taking a while for him to get to UFC.

I doubt he'll be happy if Eddie Alvarez signs and gets a title shot before him
