I feel like the UFC isn't doing this guy any favors with the guys he's being matched up against. It wasn't that long ago that he was fighting the champ, to this day his only loss. Granted he got knocked the F out, but Mendes hasn't had a name opponent since. Cody McKenzie's a fun character but is nowhere near Mendes' level. After Mendes handles him, he gets matched up with Hacran Dias who's got a good record but is a relative unknown to most fans. When Dias got hurt, he instead got Yaotzin Meza (who/??). Now he's going up against Gamburyan who's 1-3 in his last 4. What is the UFC planning with this guy? He's ranked #2 in the division on a couple sites, why isn't he getting name opponents?
