The 155-pound division gets its best fighter back next month in Anthony Pettis, who will finally return from a knee injury that has kept him inactive since August 2013. Pettis, 27, draws Gilbert Melendez in his first title defense. Melendez came close to winning the title in a split-decision loss to Ben Henderson in April 2013, but he hasn't fought since October 2013. It will be nice to see both guys return to action at UFC 181 in Las Vegas.
