The HP Pavilion in San Jose, California is home to this Saturdays 7th fight on the big network…. FOX! Headlining the card will be a fight for the Lightweight belt between champion Benson Henderson and the last Lightweight Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez. In this post you’ll learn the 4 and a half reasons why your ass should be in front of a TV Saturday night
Reason 1: Title fight
No matter like em or love em a free title fight is a title fight. This particular fight is a sudo super fight, pitting Strikeforce champion vs. UFC champion. Benson Henderson (18-2) vs. Gilbert Melendez (21-2)
Reason 2: There is a Diaz on the card!!
Like reason number 1, no matter how you feel about a Diaz, there fights are always going to be filled with action, hand gestures, foul language and dirty boxing.
Reason 3: Flyweights!??
Willy Wonka is letting some of his oompa loompa’s out of the chocolate factory to put on a fight for our entertainment. Flyweights are always fun and exciting and these two oompa loompa’s could end up being a number 1 contenders match. Joseph Benavidez (17-3) vs. Darren Uyenoyama (8-3)
Reason 4: The legend of Matt Brown continues??
Brown is rolling on a 4 fight win streak!!! Which is incredible since in 2011 he was just 12-11 but since he has beaten Chris Cope, Stephen Thompson, Luis Ramos, and Mike Swick and if he gets past Jordan Mein you have got to take this Welterweight seriously.
Reason 4.5: The whole card has a Strikeforce vs. UFC feel!
