In MMA, long time Strikeforce title holder Gilbert Melendez is all set for his UFC debut as he challenges Ben Henderson for the lightweight crown on Sunday.

Melendez says he understands that he's not that popular to UFC fans, but his 21 and 2 record speaks for itself.

Henderson, on the other hand, is coming off an impressive victory over Nate Diaz during his title defense last December.

Meanwhile, former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir will face off against the unbeaten Daniel Cormier in the event's undercard which will be held in HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. -- ANC Prime News, April 20, 2013
