Strikeforce’s Gilbert Melendez perplexed by speed of Mitsuhiro Ishida replacement booking

Strikeforce interim lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez (15-2) admits
he’s a little frustrated by the circumstances that have surrounded his
fight with Mitsuhiro Ishida (18-5-1).

With Ishida stepping in as a late replacement for an injured Josh
Thomson at Saturday’s “Strikeforce: Carano vs. Cyborg” event in San
Jose, Calif., Melendez has been forced to quickly adjust his training
for a completely different style of opponent.

And as Melendez recently told Radio, he’s not exactly sure Ishida has been forced
to deal with the same challenges.
