Chad Mendes hoping to set UFC record with 5th straight KO

 

Since losing his first shot at a UFC gold to Jose Alod, Chad Mendes has been on a mission to get back in the title picture. Mendes has won four straight fights by KO/TKO and if he can do the same at the UFC on FOX 9 he will set a UFC record for consecutive wins by KO/TKO.

Chad Mendes knocked out Cody MacKenzie at UFC 148, TKO'd Yaotzin Meza the TUF Australia Finale, TKO'd Darren Elkins at the UFC on FOX 7, and most recently TKO'd Clay Guida at UFC 164. Mendes faces Nik Lentz at this weekend's UFC on FOX 9.

I remember when people would give Mendes shit for his inability to finish fights. Now look at how much the guy has improved from just a wrestler to an amazing mix martial artist.

I agree. Chad has a much higher fight IQ than Aldo and is just as gifted athletically. The first fight Aldo was more skilled and a more well rounded fighter. I believe Chad is the better wrestler and he's much more comfortable and confident striking now. I think he beats Aldo 2nd time around and sets up an awesome trilogy between the two of them.

This. Call me when he beats a top 5 opponent in the same fashion.

Unfortunately Mirko "submitted" to punches so it didn't count as a KO/TKO.

I think Mendes could beat Aldo. He won't finish him but he could win a decision.

Didn't JDS have 5 straight KOs in his first five UFC fights? Werdum, Struve, Cro Cop, Yvel, Gonzaga

As awesome as Chad is I find Vitor head kicking bisping, rockhold and hendo into oblivion in the space of one year freakier than 5 KO's.
