The most shocking part to me was how it unfolded almost exactly how myself,numerous people on Sherdog, and mma pundits thought it would. Melendez being the more refined and quick of the two would control the pace and beat Sanchez to the punch. Sanchez would have his moments in the fight and remain aggressive throughout, but ultimately Melendez would would win a clear and exciting decision....the mix of Melendez's pressure and ferociousness and Sanchez's unwillingness to cease would clash resulting in a memorable fight, a strong FotN contender... And it literally happened almost just like that. The fight lived up to the hype, lived up to each fighter's reputation, and the fight happened almost exactly in the same way alot of people thought it would. With all of the letdowns and shocking finishes in the UFC, anybody else surprised that they weren't surprised by how this fight turned out?
