Josh Thomson and Gilbert Melendez To Fight For Undisputed Strikeforce Lightweight TItle

Strikeforce recently announced that their lightweight champion, Josh "The Punk" Thomson will be taking on the interim champion, Gilbert "El Nino" Melendez on December 19 in San Jose, California.

The championship title match will be the co-main event of "Evolution" which is the final show of the year for Strikeforce.

Thomson has been out of comission since September 20, 2008, when he defeated Ashe Bowman at an event held at the Playboy Mansion.

Melendez is looking to avenge his loss to Thomson in their first match-up. Melendez defeated Rodrigo Damm this past April to capture the interim lightweight title.

Thomson had to pull out of his fight against Yves Edwards and Melendez this year due to ankle injuries.

Thomson said he is finally healed and he is excited to get back into the cage against Melendez.

"Everything feels great now. Nothing is going to keep me out of this fight," said the 31-year-old Thomson. "I'm looking forward to getting back in there and going to work."

Thomson dominated the first match-up but this upcoming rematch should be more competitive as Thomson will have to shake off the ring rust and Melendez has looked great in his last two victories.

I agree with the guy who said Josh will pull out. But he won't this time. He will take a beating like a man this time.

Great info. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have.
