FIGHT! Life: Gilbert Melendez – Full Circle (VIDEO)

In 2006, undefeated Gilbert Melendez was on the verge of superstar status. Then his main promotion, PRIDE Fighting Championships got bought by the UFC.

After a nine-moth layoff and a pair of lackluster losses, Melendez returned with a vengeance.

In Part 3 of this FIGHT! Life series, the Strikeforce Lightweight champ discusses his rollercoaster ride of a fighting career, and his upcoming bout against controversial Japanese submission ace Shinya Aoki.
