Former title contender, Chad Mendes returned to the win column with a 31-second knockout of Cody McKenzie at UFC 148. He suffered his first career loss in his previous bout with Jose Aldo, getting knocked out in the first round last January.
A veteran of mixed martial arts since 2006, Yaotzin Meza gets a shot in the big leagues for the first time in his career. Meza recently had a six-fight win streak snapped by Andres Quintana via first round TKO. During the streak, three victories came by way of stoppages (2 submission, 1 TKO).
