If the two ever meet in the Octagon, and the action is as heated as their trash talk, we're in for an epic encounter. Melendez, the long-time Strikeforce lightweight champion, and Alvarez, his two-time Bellator counterpart, were long considered among the top non-UFC lightweights, if not the two very best, for quite some time. Alvarez is set to make his UFC debut in the co-main event of UFC 178 on Sept. 27 against read news >>

But following White's Wednesday appearance on 'UFC Tonight,' it'd be hard to say that's still the case. "I thought Tito (Ortiz) was the dumbest human being I ever met. This guy (Askren) is an absolute moron," White said when asked about the undefeated ONE FC welterweight champ. "It's almost like, you know, he gets it. He's copying everything Tito does.

A week after Luke Rockhold appeared The MMA Hour to issue a challenge for rival Michael Bisping to "put his money where his mouth his," Bisping did just the same, firing back on Tuesday's show at the "obsessed" former Strikeforce champ and his "pathetic" attempts to goad him into a fight, the most notable of which took place in the early hours of a Macau hotel following Bisping's recent fourth-round TKO victory over Cung Le.
