    Maybe we should give him a little more love...

    arguably/widely considered the number 2 in the division yet he took a fight with cody mckenzie and now after hacran dias pulled out, kept the show on the road with some random new comer who according to bendo is as legit as it can get.
    not only that; hes fighting on the prelims. on a free card


    kudos brotha

    I feel like Mendes is highly underrated, and would be a tough fight for anyone at 145.

    universally ranked #2 at fw, and he's coming into this fight a bigger favorite than anderson silva was against bonnar.

    i think mendes is ranked just fine.

    I was referring to guys on Sherdog claiming that Koch or KZ would destroy Chad because Aldo did it too. Props to Aldo for the KO (it was beautiful), but Chad would do much better in a rematch.

    EDIT: And Mendes already beat Koch in the WEC

    It sucks to see him fight on the prelims after his last outing, but hey, he just have to keep winning and work his way back up. I think ex-champ Pettis once was in the undercards vs Stephens at one point

    Chad is building up his record he can take big fights but does he really want to get another quick shot at the title when he got ko in the first round his being smart trying to find a better way to beat aldo. Not that his going to

    I think he could have easily been on the main card of a different card; he just chose to take the fight with yaotzin cause hes a bad ass little man

    Mendes is a full on Bad ASS, and he only has 1 loss and that was to freaking JOSE ALDO! A guy who's seemingly unbeatable right now, I hope after he wins Chad gets some more competition, I agree him and Edgar would be AWESOME!

    In bed with your bitch, watching game of thrones,
    Chad's cool, he didnt bitch about the fence-grab in the Aldo fight and gave him full credit.

    Good attitude, hope he wins here.

    Why would I give credit to anyone named Chad?

    I dont see much that Edgar can do that Mendes cant do, which is why I think Aldo will probably beat Franke too.

    Looking for Jesse
    Money Mendes is the man. Not a huge fan of his or anything but I enjoy watching his fights, and he always seems to just go out and fight hard. Was doing alright against Aldo before that wild Knee. Kudos to Mendes for taking it all in stride
