This fight is a joke.

McKenzie has nothing for Mendes, what's he gonna do? Get him in a guillotine? Not like that isn't the signature move of Team Alpha Male or anything. Mendes by easy decision.

I see Mendes decisively winning the first round. He should be able to take McKenzie down at will. Cody will go for his signature guillotine choke, but Mendes will pull out quickly. He then picks his strikes and easily maintains top position throughout the first round. After that, I can see McKenzie fading in the later rounds and getting absolutely dominated more and more each second and perhaps getting finished toward the end. That's right, Mendes may actually finish a fight again which hasn't happened since 2010. Cody has been known for getting tired in grinders. Considering how much grappling Mendes probably plans on doing, I see this being the same case, especially since it's Cody's first fight as a featherweight in the UFC.

First round TKO for Mendes. It would be hilarious if he guillotined Mendes though.

This is ridiculous. Mendes goes from fighting Aldo for the title to a nobody in the UFC. Mendes will completely dominate every single moment of the fight regardless of where it takes place.

This must be one of the least intriguing matchups ever. I'd be surprised if this doesn't turn into a three round wrestle****.

McKenzie's still around? Hell, I'll root for him. Why not? He must be at least trying to get better at striking and such, right?

Give More.
Give everything.
Give blood.
