Gilbert Melendez truly believes he’s the #1 lightweight in the world, and he even made a video about it

Can someone explain why this video of Gilbert Melendez playing as himself in EA Sports MMA against Eddie Alvarez didn’t get over 10,000 views on YouTube? It has indistinct, drunken yells from everyone, videogame playage and above all else, it showed Gilbert Melendez TKOing Eddie Alvarez in the first round. Now whether the latter scenario would actually happen is up for debate, but Gilbert Melendez sincerely believes that he’s the number one lightweight in mixed martial arts — and it seems like he will do everything to prove it. I guess we all will have to wait until April 9th to see an El Nino entirely localized in some cage inside California. Check out this Fight! Magazine video of Gilbert Melendez talking about his reign as the number one lightweight in the world. [Source]
