There is no doubt that Gilbert Melendez wants to make another run at the UFC lightweight title. For many years he has been considered a top tier fighter and has put on some epic battles including his UFC debut that saw him drop a split decision to now former champion Benson Henderson.  Melendez takes some time to open up about things that influence him outside of the cage. From the roar of the crowd to the respect of his opponents to the time he has to sacrifice  away from his family.

Melendez returns to action on October 19th when he meets Diego Sanchez at UFC 166. For more information on that fight and the event stay close to ProMMAnow (
