only guy of note was Guida....

Mendes loses to Aldo 10/10 again.

Mendes can be champ at 145 so he should just stay there

"That's actually something I have considered, and I definitely could," Mendes said when asked at a weekend Q&A event if he'd ever consider a move to bantamweight. "I'm not the biggest 145-pounder. I think I'm probably medium-sized for 145, but I could definitely make 135 if need be. But yeah, I'd like to make another run, hopefully win the belt at 145, defend it a few times and then depending on what my body says, if it allows it, I'd like to go down to 135, too."

Faber went to 135 so he didn't have to fight Money. Why would Chad follow him down?

Faber is a little bit thicker than Mendes. I think he could definitely make 135, if Faber fails at another title shot. Mendes will stay at bw till he gets another shot, But you also have Touchy and Palmer @ 145 from TAM. That is if Palmer gets called up soon.. And he is a huge bw.

Mendes is not a big FW, he could make 135, but this move makes no sense. He has two teammates that are close to contention there (Faber and Dillashaw in the near future). Interim champ Barao is very similar stylistically to Aldo and is pretty much the same size and skill level, so the odds of him defeating either one of them are about the same.
