With news that Manny Gamburyan was forced to pull out of his schedule bout with Chad Mendes, the former featherweight title challenger quickly took to twitter to call out Ricardo Lamas, who has been vocal about wanting a title bid of his own.

Here it is:

After reading the title I thought Lamas was just waiting for a title shot so I was surprised because this would be a great fight.
However he has a fight in May... TKZ maybe?

Im fighting in May
What a cop out and a duck
He could fight in two weeks and fight again in may if he wants

It's obvious he is faces zombie next.

I think mendes will probably face nik Lentz
Someone will want to step up and face a high ranked opponent now that Ufc rankings are in effect

i dont think he's ducking at all. he even tweeted that the May bout was already agreed upon & it just hasnt been announced yet.

Mendes isnt the kind of guy you take on short notice.

Mendes is basically the perfect counter to Lamas. He's a better wrestler, and he's got heavy hands. Lamas is good, but Mendes would be a 2:1 favorite or better.

Hell, the only guys at FW that I think Mendes can't beat are Aldo and maybe Edgar.

i dont see how anybody can say lamas is ducking. if you read the tweet it sounds legit. and nobody knows if he actually has a fight booked for may or not. i would probably pick mendes over lamas though.

Probably still licking his wounds from the beating he suffered at the hands of Siver.

How can you say he's ducking?

1. Mendes is asking him to take a fight with him on very short notice. Mendes is a guy you should have a full training camp for. Especially when Mendes has already had a full training camp...

2. Lamas already has a fight booked that hasn't been announced yet. Probably a fight with The Korean Zombie, which is a higher profile bout at this point.

That's ridiculous man... You're not only asking the guy to fight three times in 5 months (All against top competition) but you're asking him to take a fight with a top 3 guy who has had a full training camp on 2 weeks notice. Also, you don't have a clue if he's actually got a fight lined up or not.

If anything, I think it's a little unfair for Mendes to call Lamas out like he did.
