This Saturday, Strikeforce will be bringing the 2011 season to a close in San Diego, California. In the evening’s main event, Gilbert Melendez will defend his lightweight crown against Jorge Masvidal.

Melendez, black belt Cesar Gracie’s trusty sidekick, has his eyes on a UFC contract. Now Masvidal has 22 wins in 28 career fights.

I think it’s inevitable I’m heading there [to the UFC]. I’m an entertaining fighter, I put on good shows and they see that. I’m just really happy that they’re recognizing me. Any time Dana White mentions my name it’s awesome,” Melendez told

Now Cris Cyborg will be putting her welterweight belt on the line against Japan’s Hiroko Yamanaka. The Brazilian is coming off a 10-fight win streak, while Hiroko hasn’t tasted defeat since 2008.

In other match-ups on the card, Gegard Mousasi takes on Haiti’s Ovince Saint-Preuxe, and KJ Noons squares off with Billy Evangelista.
