Chad Mendes Drops Ricardo Lamas in 1st Round – Eyes Title Shot

Chad Mendes needed less than one round to finish Ricardo Lamas. (Mandatory Credit: USA Today Sports) Jose Aldo is the king of the featherweight division.  After his 5-round fight of the year win over Chad Mendes last October, Aldo complemented Mendes in proclaiming him as the division’s prince.  Mendes (17-2) cemented his status as the division’s second in command with a 1st...

Chad Mendes Has No Choice But To Cheer For Conor McGregor

Although they have never fought, UFC featherweights Chad “Money” Mendes (pictured) and Conor McGregor have quickly become mortal enemies. McGregor dubbing the small-but-deadly Mendes “Chad ‘Mini’ Mendes” helped ignite the fire. Despite despising McGregor, it would be in Mendes’ best interest if the chatty Irishman beats reigning champion Jose Aldo in their highly-anticipated...

UFC Fight Night 63: Chad Mendes vs. Ricardo Lamas (Video Highlights)

Chad Mendes (pictured) entered UFC Fight Night 63 a 4.5-1 odds-on favorite to plaster Ricardo Lamas. While Mendes’ line was quite large, bettors would have been wise to put their money on “Money.” Mendes and Lamas were both looking to bounce back from losses to reigning featherweight king Jose Aldo. Mendes did so in emphatic fashion by dropping Lamas with essentially the first...

WATCH: Chad Mendes Rains Down Some Serious Blows on Ricardo Lamas

This is one of those rare occasions where the ref deserves some credit for letting these guys fight on. Having covered quite a few UFC events over the last few months it would not have surprised me to see the ref call it after the first time Lamas went down and Mendes started raining blows down upon him. Instead he let it go and Lamas nearly made an admirable recovery--but he didn...

Bread 'n' Butter: Pros help us understand Chad Mendes' level-change uppercut

Once upon a time, high quality wrestlers like Mark Coleman came onto the MMA scene and they dominated. Very few had answers for their excellent takedowns and, as a result, top wrestlers were able to easily decide where a fight was contested. When you can choose your battlefield (in this case, on the ground or on the feet), you've often gone a long way towards winning the battle....

Chad Mendes: 'I trained for Ricardo Lamas like it is a world title fight'

In 2012, an undefeated Chad "Money" Mendes lost via sudden and last-second KO in the first round to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, after the champion got away with illegally grabbing the Octagon chain link fence.
