01:55 PM ET 01.14 | UFC champion Benson Henderson has a new deal, and is targeting a new opponent - Gilbert Melendez. Henderson, who recently signed an eight-fight deal, wants to face the Strikeforce lightweight champion next. "Frankie was considered No. 1 in the world, and Benson beat him. Now some people are saying Gilbert might be No. 1 in the world. OK, well Benson would like to beat him, too, and leave no doubt that he is the best 155-pounder in the world," Henderson's manager Malki Kawa said.
