2013 best MMA fight – Gilbert Melendez vs Diego Sanchez – full fight Video UFC 166

4_stars_mma_ranking_allthebestfightsReview: 2013-10-19, the final part of the fight between Gilbert Melendez and Diego Sanchez was simply astonishing: brutal exchanges, blood, nonstop pace and big heart, so it could be a perfect candidate for Mma Fight of the Year 2013 but unfortunately the first part was “only” a very good one and not epic. For this reason Melendez vs Sanchez (UFC Fight of the Night) gets four stars and not five, but we would like to see a rematch since it was also a very close bout. Gilbert Melendez (21-3-0, 57% finishing rate) entered as the No.3 lightweight in the world while Diego Sanchez (24-5-0, 63% finishing rate) entered as the No.10 (currently the #1 in this weight division is Anthony Pettis). Melendez vs Sanchez is on the undercard of Cain Velasquez vs Junior dos Santos 3 – UFC 166. Watch the video!

  1. hey, theres a tiny bit of open space on your site not covered with pop-ups, maybe you could cover it with a huge survey

  2. This is just brutal!!!! and one of the main reason I don’t like MMA.
    They don’t pay attention to the safe wellbeing of the fighters at all. I don’t understand how they allowed Sanchez continuing fighting with so big cut on the eyebrow. This never will happen in boxing or kickboxing fights where protections to the fighters is paramount.
