Ben Henderson vs. Gilbert Melendez 'Pros Pick' video for UFC on FOX 7

Their championship fight is just a few days away and now it's time to hear what their colleagues have to say about the upcoming UFC on FOX 7 lightweight title fight featuring Ben Henderson vs. Gilbert Melendez.

Ben Henderson will defend his UFC lightweight title against Strikeforce import Gilbert Melendez this Saturday night (April 20, 2013) in the main event of UFC on FOX 7, which emanates from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.

And, since most people don't care what Nostradumbass thinks (sniff), our buddy Spencer Lazara hit the streets to get predictions from some of today's top fighters in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

Here's what they said.

Frank Mir: "Underrated" Henderson by way of amazing performance

Cub Swanson: Henderson by being solid everywhere
Diego Brandao: Henderson because he's exciting
Anthony Njokuani: Henderson by better wrestling game
Myles Jury: Melendez by upset
