The guys over at Middleasy cornered Strike Force CEO Scott Coker to ask him about the speculation on the long asked for entry into the UFC of Gilbert Melendez. Melendez claims he is the best 155lb fighter in the world but contracts and agreements have kept 'El Nino' from testing his skills in the UFC water.

Coker explains that Melendez still has a fight left with Josh Thomson to settle their 1-1 tie right now. Do you think Melendez will make it to the UFC in 2012?
