LOS ANGELES - Gilbert Melendez laughs off the fact that his next opponent, UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, is going to be featured on a Wheaties box and he won't.

Things have been a little topsy-turvy in Sara McMann’s UFC run; in fact, the one-time Olympic wrestler’s trajectory seems slightly ridiculous even though the Zuffa portion of her career is just shy of three fights old. McMann destroyed the "Wanderlei Silva" of women’s MMA, the German fighter Sheila Gaff, in her debut on the UFC 157 prelims. It was a good start which generated the right amount of buzz.
