The UFC's middleweight division has a new addition.

Eddie Mendez, a California-based fighter and onetime Strikeforce competitor, has signed with the world's biggest MMA promotion.

Mendez and his management team at Iridium Sports today announced the signing via Twitter, though terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

At a quick glance, I saw the endez in the name, was happy for a split second, thinking Gilberto has finally made it to the UFC.

I thought it was Eddie Alvarez for a second there and got excited.

Mendez is still a good signing though.
