PREDICTION

It's good to see Sanchez back at lightweight, where I believe he's more effective. This is just a tough fight, though. He won't be able to consistently get top position and doesn't have the kind of hand speed, footwork or power it takes to give Melendez trouble.

MELENDEZ BY TKO, SECOND ROUND.
