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.

Manny Gamburyan ended a three-fight losing streak with a unanimous decision victory over Michihiro Omigawa at UFC on Fox 4. In September of 2010, Gamburyan fought against Jose Aldo for the WEC featherweight title but was knocked out in the second round. After the UFC/WEC merger, he lost his first two UFC bouts by decision to Tyson Griffin and Diego Nunes.
