Me too. I used to hate seeing him on cards and now I look forward to it. The guy has turned into an exciting monster. Should be a W against Lentz. I look forward to his rematch against Aldo if that comes.

I like this fight, Nik Lentz is tough as nails and always improving. And has looked like a machine at 145. Not a gimme fight at all. I dont think Mendes will finish him tbh

Since there is nobody else its clear Lamas/Cub are gonna fight for a title shot while Aldo is hurt with his foot.  I expect Cub/Lamas to get made for 167 168 or the Fox show, maybe even the main event of an FS1 card in Nov/Dec or on one of those cards.

Hacran Dias was supposed to fight Mendes but got injured.Everyone was fine with that since he was such a respected prospect.He came back fought Lentz and lost. Lentz has looked great since dropping to featherweight.I like this fight and do not think it will be as easy for Mendes as most think it will.
