Chad Mendes won his third consecutive fight by first round knockout at UFC on FOX 7, finishing Darren Elkins in just a minute and eight seconds. He previously earned knockout victories over Cody McKenzie and Yaotzin Meza. One more victory in the octagon will likely earn Chad Mendes another shot at UFC gold.
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.
