Another lightweight title fight, another razor-close decision.

Despite a spirited early effort from former Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez, Benson Henderson retained his belt by a split-call.

The lightweight title bout, which unofficially capped off a night of matchups between the shuttered Strikeforce and the UFC, was the main event of today's UFC on FOX 7 event at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. It aired on FOX following prelims on FX and Facebook.

Two judges scored the contest 48-47 for Henderson while one dissented for Melendez by the same score. The decision was roundly booed by the crowd, which repeatedly chanted for Bay Area resident Melendez before and during the fight.

I think the Thomson Diaz match proves that Gil has faced higher level opponents.

Thomson just did what Ben couldn't do (or anyone else), and fought to close dec's vs gil thus mmath determine that gil is better than Ben.

plus Gil was top of the weight class before the ufc had a division, and ufc hype heavily biased the ranking once they restarted the div.

(I'm only trolling with one of those statements.)

And that has exactly what to do with this argument???

There was no implication of anything, the guy simply said "faced".

I agree that Josh arguably beat Gil in their last fight, but Gil beat him twice before that, also close fights.

You're looking waaaaaay too far into things. God damn simple reading comprehension, bro. Try it some time. Phone Post
You can't make a blanket statement that he faced competition because he finished a guy the champ also beat. That's all. I apologize for bringing that up but since the diaz Maia thread you've been a little out there and then I heard you welched. It was childish to bring up Phone Post

Never Paid Wolf Ticket Taxes - "You can't make a blanket statement that he faced competition because he finished a guy the champ also beat."

Look, the guy was simply saying that Gil has faced tough, high-level competition fighters and beaten them. I thought the third fight was close but that Gil won on points. I thought Gil also won the first two fights.

No matter who anyone thinks won any of the fights, Thomson's finish of Nate proves that Gil has absolutely faced high-level competition. Phone Post
He said higher. Phone Post

Never Paid Wolf Ticket Taxes - High-level or higher-level, however you want to phrase a guy like Thomson, the statement is accurate.

Gil was criticized that he hadn't faced high/higher-level competition in Strikeforce. Thomson's KO win over the guy who just fought for the title proves that Gil has faced high/higher-level opponents, even if the most recent fight was really close. Phone Post
Dude he made the statement that he fought better people. Phone Post

Hope Gilbert can pull it off, but I think Henderson will be too much.
