Zuffa is scrapping the Melendez vs Masvidal fight.  Gilberts next fight will be in the UFC.

The winner of Gray/Edgar will be asked to Main event UFC 140 against El Nino unless Jon Jones changes his mind and fights Rashad on dec. 10th which Evans has already agreed to.

Let the plunder and pillage of Shitfarce continue.

Damn...That really sucks. Feel bad for Jorge. Seems pretty obvious Dana didn't want to risk Gilbert possibly being damaged goods had he lost that fight or not not winning in spectacular fashion which would have been near impossible against Masvidal.

If true, I think this is a great move by UFC brass.

So Melendez will be put on the backburner until he faces some TUF graduate?

We all look forward to that

Strikeforce was a dead man walking before this was even announced, the Melendez move to the UFC was just a way to remind you that Strikeforce is dead, in case you forgot yesterday.

 How is this not awesome? Gil deserves a shot at the top guys in the ufc. He will make a shitload more money too.

if masvidal is good enough he will be in the ufc too. not really understanding the complaining.

Why not just reschedule the Melendez-Masvidal fight to the December UFC card? That's an awesome fight regardless of what organization it takes place. Damn, I was pumped for that fight.

 It was only a matter of time for Melendez to come over to the UFC. He deserves to be there.

But with the timing of this, Masvidal should also come over to the UFC. It's not right to pull this fight from him and not compensate him in some way.

Glad that Gil will get a chance to prove he's the #1 LW in the world (as I said practically a year ago) but it is sad to see the only serious competition to the UFC get folded up and picked apart.........

Why does everyone believe that this fight is off?

I've been looking everywhere and there isn't a single website reporting this.

So, unless MMALOGIC has insider info and I'm the only one that doesn't know, everyone's getting trolled.

I like this move, but to be fair to Masvidal, he has to be brought over too.

There is no way that Masvidal won't be in the UFC. He is elite.

This isn't scrapped...

That said it's a pointless fight. Masvidal isn't top 15 and Gilbert needs to be in the uFC.

 Seems like a quick turnaround for Gray or Edgar but I like the idea.
