I was wrong about Gilbert Melendez.

The title says it all. I was wrong. I was one of the guys who would admit that he was talented and athletic, but then turnaround and say he didn't belong in the top 10 because of his "choosing to stay" In Strikeforce. Perhaps my bias against the Cesar Gracie team caused me to not see him for what he is.

Either way, I was wrong. Melendez put up a helluva fight, even more so than his teammates. I think Melendez has shown that he's the one with a real future in the UFC. I don't have an opinion on who won between him and Bendo. I think that the decision could have gone either way and it did. I think Melendez had more opportunity to win, but in the end they let it go to the judges. Regardless, I'm excited to see his next fight. I didn't give him enough credit and I can admit when I'm wrong.
