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…
Hey All. Everyone is asking about Gilbert’s leg. Here is a pic today. He is doing A ok. Thank you to all for the support. We feel the love pic.twitter.com/VQpNj7JlTO

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.
