If Mendes has to lay and pray against a potentially tired McKenzie, he may be the worst great fighter at 145. Or at least the safest. A big reason on why McKenzie has little chance at winning by submission is because of Mendes' wrestling and his lack of risk taking. He should pour it on in the later rounds where McKenzie is known to fatigue. A larger chance of that happening since this is Cody's first fight at 145 in the UFC.
