Chad Mendes is looking for another shot at the UFC featherweight belt, and his quest for that will continue this December against Nik Lentz at UFC on Fox 9.

I'm in favor of this match up. If Money wins, he should get the shot.

?? Too similar a style match up to Guida, and Carpenter got destroyed... what is the actual point of this ?

I disagree with this fight. Lamas, Swanson, Poirier or even the Aldo rematch would have made more sense than this. I see another highlight reel KO for Mendes here.

Agree with Kaiba and Davies


Dont like this fight. seems just to be a hype up fight


Boo. give him someone who is an actual legitimate threat who can shake up the rankings

Sounds like they're trying to keep up a line of contenders. They don't want Mendes to knock guys like Lamas and Swanson out of contention. This way Aldo has 3-4 challengers lined up instead of just Mendes whose beaten the all the others.

My guess is

Aldo vs lamas

Swanson will face someone else
Maybe Diego brandao

Or Aldo vs cub

Llamas vs Poirier

Lentz vs mendes doesnt make sense

What a horrible match up. Mendes deserves a better opponent.

Mendes vs Swanson is what I wanted to see with the winner getting the next title shot

this.

FW finally has a lineup of legit contenders, I don't see a reason to knock them off to only have one true contender followed by a few guys who haven't really been on a streak.

I don't get it...Lentz, Brandao?! Have we seen these guys fight? Aldo, Mendes, Swanson and Lamas are in another league right now. If Swanson has to face Brandao then it will be over as soon as Brandao gets tired (so 2nd round). Mendes will TKO Lentz rather quickly.
