Benson Henderson, the current UFC Lightweight Champion, takes on Gilbert Melendez, the final Strikeforce Lightweight Champion.

This will be Melendez’s debut in the premier MMA promotion in the world whilst Henderson has been remained unbeaten in six fights during his tenure at the UFC, dismantling ‘El Nino’s’ friend and training partner Nate Diaz in his last appearance in the octagon.

The rivals have some things in common: Neither fighter has lost more than twice; they both are extremely quick; and their range is similar. But if number of knockouts are anything to go by, Melendez will give Henderson a run for his money. Melendez has knocked out 11 of his opponents, whereas Henderson has only knocked out two.

Get down to your local for what will probably be a five-round battle to remember.
