This weekend in the UFC on FOX 7, Gilbert Melendez will attemp to unify his Strikeforce lightweight title with the UFC's lightweight title and in essence become the undisputed number one lightweight in the world. Although he holds no anomisity towards Benson Henderson, on fight day the champion will be his worst enemy:

"No matter what, there's heat," he said. "I respect Benson. He's the No. 1 guy right now. He's the UFC champ. But come fight day, I'm going to try to kill him. I have bad intentions, and it is personal. I don't need to be mad at someone. I'm a professional, and I know how to turn on the switch and turn it on and off when I need to. Some people turn it on a month out. I turn it on right when it's time.

"It's going to be heated. It's going to be personal. It's just how I fight – I'm going to try to kill the guy. I don't need anyone talking crap on me. But let it be known, on fight day, Benson is not my friend. In fact, he's the enemy that day and I have to destroy him. That's the mentality I have to have."

I hope Gilbert enjoys the lone main event he'll ever have in the UFC.  Ben Henderson by shutout.

I like Gil but I really hate when fighters say shit like this.  Everytime someone says crap like that they come out and fight passive.  Same as saying their opponent is taking food from his kids.

2-3 years ago I would've given this to Melendez hands down. As of now though Bendo is too young and dominant. I have to go with unanimous decision.

Gil last fight with thompson was an example of a point fighter. Not a scratch on thompson but managed to get a billion baby strikes in.while Gil looked straight up like he got his a$$ kicked.

So when Gil says kill, does he mean kill him with points?

Gil won't even get a chance to use his boxing.

You're all crazy if you think this fight goes any different than the last title defense Bendo made. Phone Post 3.0

therealeags - I have no clue why everyone thinks Benson can win this. It's funny how people spend so much time watching something but can't analyze a match up for shit.
This is one of the worst match ups for Bendo and he will most likely get dominated or maybe even finished.

Bendo should be favored but a lot of people are underestimating Gil, he's absolutely capable of winning this fight. Phone Post

Now if he is successful, it is premeditated.

Heavier sentencing, for a first degree charge.

Wait, what?

If he even gets to use it. Ben will use kicks, strikes from range and wrestling to take it out of the equation.
