Chad Mendes continued his climb up to number one contender status, with a stunning first round knockout of Yaotzin Meza at UFC of FX 6 in Australia. Even though he’s known for his wrestling, that was Mendes’ second straight knockout victory, also finishing Cody McKenzie with a punch to the body last July at UFC 148.
Clay Guida snapped a two-fight losing streak with a controversial split decision victory over Hatsu Hioki at UFC on FOX 6. It was his first time in the 145-pound division after amassing a 9-7 record as a lightweight, including key victories over Rafael dos Anjos, Takanori Gomi, and Anthony Pettis.
