    I see him making headlines he is back.

    I really want to see this fight. I think mendes has a better chance than Frankie.

    What do you think?

    Does Chad without his steroid cream beat Holloway? I see him taking Holloway down with ease

    Especially since mcgregor did it with one leg. Frankie might be too small and old. Just saying

    Holloway would jab him and take him out.

    Chad without his steroid cream is nothing.

    Max via 2nd round TKO.

    Mendes was a problem for anyone in the division. Not that he easily beats Max, but he's a threat. And we'd know more after the Edgar fight. But that assumes he returns looking like he did.

    I felt like Edgar got a bit lucky in the Mendes fight. Not a lucky punch or anything like that, but just that I expected and it could have easily been a really tough fight.

    Holloway by body kicks. And just being the all around better fighter.

    Holloway's takedown defense is great and Mendes has been out of the game for a long time. Holloway inevitably overwhelms him into a finish.

    Mendes seemed to be on the decline before getting popped. I'd like to see him get a warm up fight before fighting a real contender. Maybe Bermudes

    Max all day. Jabs, distance management and permanent pressure will break the small man.

    Max would knock his ass out, Holloway is on another level than these guys.

    LOL

    Chad is old, coming off 3 outta 4 brutal losses. He should be fighting Bektic or Zombie
