Mendes hoping for title fight after 'killing' Guida


Chad Mendes was a perfect 6-0 in the WEC/UFC before challenging Jose Aldo for the UFC title, which unforutnately ended with him being KOd at the end of the first round. Mendes is since 3-0 and with a win over Clay Guida at UFC 164 hopes to earn another shot at the featherweight champion:

"I think if I put on a great performance, this should put me right back on line for the title," said Mendes during yesterday's (Aug. 29) UFC 164 press conference. "I'm feeling better than I ever have and I expect to go out there and kill Clay and I should be right back in there."

"I would definitely love to be the one to dethrone him. He's been on a tear for such a long time it would mean a lot to me," revealed Chad, who says he doesn't envision Aldo moving up to the lightweight division to challenge for that title.

"I don't see him going up to 155 at all. He's had some issues cutting weight but I don't think it's too bad. I don't know, though. I would definitely like to be the one to beat him."

i used to be a huge guida fan when i was an MMA noob.i saw a couple of his fights replayed on spike, then i saw him fight live and i thought he was exciting.but his recent fights have been terrible, and i hope that mendes can win this fight excitingly or else guida may turn it into another stinker

Mendes is really good. Like really God Damn good...I think after Aldo leaves for 55 he will be champ. It will either be Mendes or Frankie. Im leaning VERY SLIGHTY towards Chad to win that fight.

He was SUPPOSED to fight Hacran Dias. He was also supposed to fight Guida earlier, and he crushed Elkins who just beat Hioki and who was on a hell of a streak.Not Mendes' or the UFC's fault that he had to fight a couple injury replacements.

Guida will win because Greg Jackson hates to lose.

I'm a Mendes fan but, Lamas deserves next. Win over Guida puts Mendes in a True #1 contender bout against winner of Cub/Frankie. If Cub Vs. Frankie isn't officially a go book Cub Vs. Mendes for next shot. Frankie Vs. Koch/Poirier winner. Theres options.
