Mendez remains undefeated in his mixed martial arts career, amassing a 7-0-1 record with four of those victories coming by way of stoppages (3 TKO, 1 Sub). He defeated Fernando Gonzalez by split decision at Strikeforce: Melendez vs Masvidal in his first fight for a major promotion. Most recently, Mendez defeated Fabio Nascimento via unanimous decision at a Light Out event in May of this year.
Nick Penner returns for the first time since losing his UFC debut to Anthony Perosh via first round TKO at UFC on FX 2. The loss snapped an eight-fight win streak, most notably a unanimous decision victory over prospect Tim Chemelli in September of last year.
