A lightweight matchup between Edson Barboza and Gilbert Melendez is in the works for July 23's UFC on FOX 20 event in Chicago.

Globo originally reported the matchup Wednesday, and MMA Fighting has since confirmed.




Barboza (17-4) is coming off the biggest win of his career, a unanimous-decision victory over former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis at UFC 197.

Barboza repeatedly blasted Pettis with kicks throughout the bout, controlling the stand-up portion of the fight and cruising to victory.

Melendez (22-5), meanwhile, has not competed since a split-decision loss to Eddie Alvarez at UFC 188 this past June. Following that fight, Melendez failed a drug test for "exogenous origin of testosterone metabolites" and was suspended one year.

Prior to the suspension, Melendez was slated to face Al Iaquinta at UFC Fight Night 71 in San Diego.

Yes. I think that's the true tested recipe to beat Barboza.
He will kill you on the outside, but seems to struggle when the pressure is kept on him.
