03:01 PM ET 12.14 | Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez knows who he wants to face next: UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson. "I want to fight Benson Henderson," Melendez said. "I think a champion versus champion fight makes absolute sense right now. I think we already know how things are going to work out between Benson Henderson and a lot of other lightweight fighters in the UFC, but I'm that mystery fighter. No one really knows how I'm going to matchup with anyone. I have been around for a long time and have been the top lightweight in the world before Benson or any of these other guys." There is no official news about what's next for Melendez, but it is believed he'll matriculate to the UFC sometime in 2013.
