Gilbert Melendez Calls Out Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante

"I don’t want MMA to become boxing, with boring fights and fighters who throw one punch the whole round. The winner is the guy who finishes the fight, not caring about what’s on the judges’ scorecards. I feel some guys are afraid to lose and I don’t want that for MMA."

"I like watching Maurício Shogun a lot. I’ve loved watching him ever since the days of Pride. I’d also love to face Gesias ("JZ" Cavalcante); he’s one of the best in the world."
