Filed under: Featured Videos , News , Radio Highlight , UFC , Videos With a 1-4 record since joining the UFC as one of the top-ranked lightweights in the world, Gilbert Melendez is looking for a way to turn around his career. That may mean a trip to featherweight in the near future. Melendez (22-6 MMA, 21-2 UFC) is on a three-fight losing skid, most recently dropping a unanimous decision to Edson Barboza at UFC on FOX 20 this past month. Melendez, a former Strikeforce champion, entered the UFC with a 21-2 record and had avenged both of his career losses (Josh Thomson and Mitsuhiro Ishida), leading some to consider him the best 155-pound fighter in the world.
