UFC on Fox 7: Henderson vs Melendez Live Odds

UFC on Fox 7: Henderson vs Melendez was a mixed martial arts event held on April 20, 2013, at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. The event was broadcast live on Fox Sports.

The event was headlined by a Lightweight Championship bout between the current champion Benson Henderson and Strikeforce Lightweight Champion, promotional newcomer Gilbert Melendez.

Also featured on the card was a bout between two time Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir and Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix Champion Daniel Cormier.

While Melendez came out aggressively from the opening, he slowed ever so slightly near the middle of the fight, and the loss of energy might have cost him.

That allowed Henderson (19-2) to return to his kick-heavy offense and land more regularly. Early in the fight, Melendez was catching those kicks and threatening with takedowns.

Melendez had his moments with flurries in which he was hunting with his big right hand, but Henderson handled everything he could muster.

Benson Henderson vs Gilbert Melendez:

Round 5: Henderson almost takes the leg out from under Melendez again. The challenger stays up, dodges an uppercut but eats a left hand as he backs off. Melendez pressures Henderson on the outside, clipping with a right hook, then Henderson turns the tables and gets on the outside.

Henderson lands his inside leg kick-standing elbow combination again before circling outside and forcing Melendez to give chase. Another leg kick, another elbow and Henderson blocks an uppercut from the challenger as the clock goes under two minutes remaining. Melendez leaps in with a knee to the body, backs off and allows Henderson to get off the fence. Melendez connects with an uppercut in an exchange, then hits Henderson with a right as the champ moves out. Henderson lands an elbow up top, countered by a Melendez right to the body.

Melendez sticks a jab, Henderson misses with a spinning kick, and both men wait out the final few seconds so they can throw their arms up as the final horn sounds.
