    Melendez, a 28-year-old Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu stylist, reclaimed the belt from the man who took it from him – Josh “The Punk” Thomson – with a five-round unanimous decision in one of the most ferocious battles of all time in the cage at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. on Dec. 19, 2009.  The stunning victory came just four months after Melendez avenged the only other defeat of his career by stopping Japanese wrestling ace Mitsuhiro “The Endless Fighter” Ishida with an onslaught of punches in the third round (3:56) of a rematch on Aug. 15, 2009.
