UFC Fight Night 63 in Tweets: Pros react to Chad Mendes vs. Ricardo Lamas, Al Iaquinta vs. Jorge Masvidal
Chad Mendes proved once again that he may be one of the two best featherweights in the world on Saturday afternoon, preserving his unbeaten record in WEC/UFC non-title fights by roaring through fellow contender Ricardo Lamas in the main event of UFC Fight Night 63. Mendes cracked Lamas with a right hand early in the opening frame, and from there the finish was Mendes' for the taking. Check out reaction from Mendes' wild win below, plus complete reaction from a rowdy afternoon in Virginia.

Video: UFC Fight Night 63 fighter weigh-ins replay and results
The festivities took place at Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va. The same venue hosts Saturday’s FOX Sports 1-televised event. Among those weighing in are recent featherweight title challengers Chad Mendes (145.5 pounds) and Ricardo Lamas (145.5), who meet in the main event. Both made the mark with ease. Only co-headliner Jorge Masvidal failed to make weight. However, he weighed 156.5 pounds – just a half pound over the 156-pound limit – and was given two additional hours to cut the weight. About 40 minutes after his first attempt, Masvidal returned to the stage in plastics and a sweatsuit. After drying off, he was 156 pounds and official for the co-main event.

Arizona issues 'safety recommendation' for one fighter to retire after brutal WSOF 19 loss
Twelve fighters received extended medical suspensions in the aftermath of World Series of Fighting 19, including lightweight headliners Justin Gaethje and Luis Palomino, according to information released to MMAFighting.com by the Arizona Boxing & MMA Commission. Gaethje and Palomino both sported a myriad of injuries from their ‘Fight of the Year' candidate brawl, which Gaethje won by third-round TKO to retain his WSOF lightweight belt. Palomino will now be forced to receive clearance on his left knee, ankle, thigh, and right hand before returning to competition, while Gaethje will be forced to do the same for his right brow and right foot. The most curious note from the event's medical suspension report came from the undercard though. , a 31-year-old regular of the Arizona fight scene, was given an indefinite suspension by the ABMC along with a "safety recommendation to stop competing."
