No he didn't. Three KOs against nobodies, an early stoppage against Guida after two rounds of boring pointfighting and gassing out in one round against an overrated Lentz and then lnping the rest of the fight doesn't earn you a title shot.
Cub Swanson and Dennis Bermudez have both done more and done it more impressively than Mendes has.
Him getting the title shot is a total joke.
