Gilbert Melendez fought for the UFC lightweight title, going five rounds with champion Benson Henderson in April. He came up short in a close contest and Henderson tied the octagon's record three title defenses in the division. Melendez has avenged two out of three career losses (Henderson is the only fighter with one up on him). From The Lab in Arizona where Henderson studies under John Crouch to Melendez's "El Nino" Training Center in California, Diamond is fortunate enough to help protect these top athletes so they can go the distance without those low blow stoppages. That was one of our favorite fights this year so far. Who do you want to see Melendez and Henderson fight next?
