Photo: Gilbert Melendez’s Leg Post UFC 215

At UFC 215 Gilbert Melendez  put on a herculean effort fighting basically on one leg while going the distance with Jeremy Stephens.

Stephens made the former Strikeforce champion’s left leg his main point of attack beginning in the first round, which would lead to an intense amount of swelling almost making the leg unusable.

The day after the fight with Stephens, Gilbert’s wife and Bellator fighter Keri Melendez released a photo of the UFC fighter’s leg…

While the battle wound may last for a while, it seems that Melendez’ effort did not go unnoticed as he received a $50,000 Fight of the night bonus for his performance in Edmonton.
