All week long, Gilbert Melendez and Diego Sanchez promised fireworks from their UFC 166 lightweight showdown.
And boy, did they deliver. In a slugfest which will rank high on the Fight of the Year list and be remembered for a long time to come, Melendez and Sanchez went toe-to-toe for 15 minutes of insane action.
In the end, Melendez won via unanimous decision at Houston's Toyota Center, taking scores of 29-28, 30-27, and 29-28.
"That's what Mexicans do, we hold our ground and we fight," said Melendez (22-3). "I'd rather go down on my shield then run in circles."
