With officials unable to find a replacement for injured opponent Manny Gamburyan, Chad Mendes has been pulled from the Feb. 23 UFC 157 event altogether.

But the former title challenger is getting what is arguably a bigger fight when Mendes (13-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) meets fellow featherweight Clay Guida (30-13 MMA, 10-7 UFC) at UFC on FOX 7 on April 20, UFC President Dana White confirmed with USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) on Monday.

The event takes place at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. Mendes vs. Guida could be one of four fights featured on the network-televised main card, which follows prelims on FX and Facebook...

My excitement level depends on which Guida shows up. I don't want to see another dance off.

Hopefully, Chad keeping the pressure on will prevent more of this

I prefer Clay fight guys he can't take down so we can all see what a one dimensional fighter he is. I think I love this fight.

I'll be rooting for Mendes in this one, easily.

Mendes - Please Knock this Asshole out!

I can't wait to see Clay's stupid head movement stop with a vicious KO

Perfect fight. Mendes will eliminate any chance of Guida getting a title shot any time soon

Chad is on a fast track to getting another title shot. Not sure if he finishes Guida but, I defintely think he wins the fight convincingly

I'm glad Joe Silva finally remembered the tier Mendes is in and didn't schedule him against another Cody McKenzie type opponent.

Hopefully Mendes gets Guida fighting like he used to fight

much better matchup for mendes. it will be very interesting to see where the wrestling goes in this fight. both have the ability to stop each others TD's.
