LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Anthony Pettis stopped Gilbert Melendez with a guillotine choke 1:53 into the second round, defending his lightweight championship at UFC 181 on Saturday night.Pettis (18-2) dramatically finished the fight shortly after landing a front kick to the face of Melendez (22-4), who was staggered for the first time. Melendez attempted a takedown, but Pettis defended it and swiftly locked in the decisive choke to end his first title defence.I know how good I am, but a lot of people were questioning how good I am, Pettis said.Pettis hadnt fought in 16 months, but came back from injuries for his first bout since winning his belt last year.

Ive been working every day in the gym, and Im still young in this game.Melendez took down Pettis twice in the opening minutes and kept the champion pinned against the cage for most of the first round.

I couldnt get my combos going. Hes extremely fast and a very tough opponent.Pettis had been out of action since he won his belt in August 2013 with a first-round submission victory over Benson Henderson.

He rose to prominence with his famed Showtime kick in December 2010, leaping off the cage wall to land a jaw-dropping head kick on Henderson.Pettis had fought just three times in the previous three years, winning all three bouts in the first round and raising worries of ring rust.Yet Melendez also hadnt fought in 14 months since his bloody victory over Diego Sanchez in one of 2013s best bouts.
