UFC 188 is right around the corner, and in addition to the Cain Velasquez- Fabricio Werdum, the card will feature a compelling lightweight scrap between Eddie Alvarez and Gilbert Melendez.
The latter will be fighting for the first time since last December, when he was tapped out by Anthony Pettis and failed to secure the UFC lightweight belt. As long time fans know, Melendez has been regarded as one of the planet’s best 155’ers for years, and in advance of UFC 188, the promotion has posted on of his greatest hits.
In the video below, you will see Melendez take out Rodrigo Damm, when the two were competing for Strikeforce. The bought went down in April, 2009. It is insane how time flies.
UFC 188 will be hosted by the Mexico City Arena on June 13th.
