‘Strikeforce: Heavyweight Grand Prix Final’ results: Gilbert Melendez survives Josh Thomson

Posted on May 20th, 2012 by Rich in Martial Arts Resources

SAN JOSE, Calif. – It may not find itself as one of the most historic trilogies in MMA lore, but Gilbert Melendez and Josh Thomson certainly provided one of the more entertaining 15-round matchups in recent memory.

But in a best-of-three series, there must always be a winner, and Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez on Saturday earned that honor by topping Josh Thomson via split decision.

The lightweight title bout, which took place at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., aired on Showtime and served as the co-main event of the “Strikeforce: Heavyweight Grand Prix Final.”
