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.
Darren Elkins continued his streak in the UFC featherweight division with a early-stoppage TKO victory over Antonio Carvalho at UFC 158. Despite the controversy, he’s now won fight straight fights in the UFC, including decision victories over Michihiro Omigawa, Diego Brandao, and Steven Siler.
