    Korean Zombie says he wants to fight at UFC Japan. It seems very other top FW has a fight coming up besides Chad. The event is 3 months away and Chad didn't really take any damage at all tonight. Anyone else think it makes sense?

    ya it makes sense. Chad just won 2 straight ko. and he is ready to move up and I wouldn't mind seeing him get choked out by KZ either.

    dangerous fight for kz and the ufc. if kz loses, do they want mendes back in a title fight that fast?

    Great fight, too bad I just dont see KZ winning it. But as long as he keeps walking out to the Cranberries Ill be a fan.

    Makes too much sense for the UFC to do. Chad Mendes is going to fight Chris Cope next, lol!!!11


    Seriously though, this injury was weird, and had a bizarre bizarre matchup as the result, but I don't see Mendes moving in the rankings after it. I see UFC pursuing the Dias match honestly.

    I think he should get another crack at the title, Aldos fence grabbing got swept under the carpet something fierce after their first outing. That played a huge roll in how the fight went.

    I doubt the UFC makes this fight. KZ is on a title run. They are not going to risk having him -- who is probably the next contender after Edgar -- go up against a guy who just lost a title fight. What if Mendes wins (which I think he will)? The UFC is not going to give him a shot at Aldo/Edgar so quickly after getting ko'd, and they are going to lose a contender in KZ. Lose lose situation.

    Why not?

    KZ by submission or KO, he can do it all.

    Actually, not really. We're hoping that KZ is going to be ready by March, but we'll have to see.

    I'm assuming that's why the Swanson fight was not made?
