Strikeforce interim lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez has responded through Sherdog to claims by Mitsuhiro Ishida that he greased in his third-round knockout win at Saturday’s “Carano vs. Cyborg” event in San Jose:
“I did not grease in the fight. The athletic commission was with me the whole time. I didn’t bring any grease with me. I didn’t think there was much grappling in the fight anyway. It’s kind of funny, but kind of weak. I beat him good and there’s no way I greased.”
