OscarGoldmen - Mendes is skilled and usually pretty exciting,however Aldo is on another level. I think they are slow tracking him to another shot to keep the fights new and less rematches perhaps. Phone Post

naughtiidawg liver kicked my SN - Mendes vs Lamas would solidify a spot for either. Taking out Cody M. Isn't exactly #2 status worthy Phone Post
Disagree.

The co-main of the Aldo vs Pettis card should be Lamas vs Zombie to determine No.1 contender.

It's too soon for Mendes to be getting another shot. Give someone else a chance. Phone Post
Your right, forgot about TKZ.
How about,

TKZ/Lamas

Mendes/Manny winner vs Siver/Poirier winner Phone Post

They did try to give him Hacran Dias who is very good. I'm not sure why he's fighting Gamburyan now. Phone Post

Lulz McGee - Lesser level of competition=finishes.

They're not punishing him. Just waiting until he's grown as a fighter or possibly until Aldo moves up to LW permanently. Phone Post

Tomato Can - I don't see anything wrong with the Gamburyan matchup. It seems pretty sensible.

I wanna know why they're not pushing Robbie Peralta up the ladder. He beat Takaya (DREAM FW champ) in Strikeforce and in his most recent fight he destroyed Jason Young in 23 seconds, and his next opponent is ... Akira Corassani?

Yes it is rather sensible for the #1 ranked contender to face the #20 ranked fighter who has lost 3 of his last 4, only beating a guy who has lost 5 of his last 6.


I don't consider Mendes to be a #1 contender no matter what the "official" rankings say.
It is what the new official rankings say. Phone Post

I know, that exactly why I said "no matter what the official rankings say".
