mendez is a fool if he falls for the guillotine.. however his style makes him the perfect candidate to get trapped in it.. i expect mendez to finish this fight in the first or second via G&P

How's this fight making sense anyway? Mendes is coming off a title shot and Mendes is 2-2. The UFC should try to keep him winning in the somewhat shallow division, not give him to one of the best guys in he division.

I'm surprised so many feel that Mendes is going to finish a tough guy like McKenzie when Mendes doesn't really finish anyone. Don't get me wrong, McKenzie isn't very good at all, but he is damn tough and his guard is a decent one. Mendes is an ultra-safe fighter with a good skillset going against a not-so-skilled guy who actually fights to finish.

Go McKenzie.

Seems a bit of a mismatch to be honest, the guy who just thought for the title (albeit he got brutally knocked out in the first) against, well, Cody McKenzie? I loved Cody on the show, and his guillotine is awesome but I'm pretty confident Mendes has got this.

Cody may be tough, but he's been finished in all of his losses. His conditioning is suspect and with a strong wrestler controlling him, I'd be surprised if he didn't gas during this fight. It being a new weight class makes it even more likely like I said. Mendes should only play it safe for one round, and he might not even need too.

The flip side to all this is he locks in his McKenzietine from the bottom when need be. Frankly I don't think he's all that tough just nuts, I hope the Diaz's can toughen him up.

Mendes has no neck = no guillotine for Mackenzie.


Mendes will ragdoll Mackenzie.
