Yaotzin Meza replaces Hacran Dias to fight Chad Mendes

YAOTZIN MEZA REPLACES HACRAN DIAS, MEETS CHAD MENDES AT FRIDAY'S UFC ON FX 6


Yaotzin Meza (18-7 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is a late replacement for Hacran Dias (21-1-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) and makes his promotional debut against fellow featherweight Chad Mendes (12-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) this week at UFC on FX 6.

MMAjunkie.com first reported Dias' scratch from the card due to a shoulder injury, and UFC officials recently confirmed Meza as a replacement.

UFC on FX 6 takes place Saturday at Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre in Broadbeach, Gold Coast, Australia. The event's main card airs live on FX (on Friday in the U.S. due to the time difference) following prelims on FUEL TV.

Mendes vs. Meza is in the featured slot of the FUEL TV-televised prelims.

Meza, who trains with the likes of UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson and former WEC champ Jamie Varner at The MMA Lab in Arizona, turned pro in 2006 and has fought primarily with Rage in the Cage. A recent six-fight win streak came to an end in an April with a TKO loss to Andres Quintana. Eleven of his 18 wins have come via stoppage.

Mendes fought most recently in July at UFC 148 and delivered a vicious body shot to Cody McKenzie that brought him a 31-second TKO win. It was the Team Alpha Male fighter's first appearance since a KO loss to current featherweight champ Jose Aldo at UFC 142, which was the first setback of Mendes' career. The longtime wrestler went unbeaten in four fights for the now-defunct WEC and was 2-0 in the octagon before meeting Aldo.

The full UFC on FX 6 card now includes:

MAIN CARD (FX, 9 p.m. ET)
Ross Pearson vs. George Sotiropoulos
Brad Scott vs. Robert Whittaker - "TUF: Smashes" welterweight-tournament final
Colin Fletcher vs. Norman Parke - "TUF: Smashes" lightweight-tournament final
Hector Lombard vs. Rousimar Palhares
PRELIMINARY CARD (FUEL TV, 6 p.m. ET)
Chad Mendes vs. Yaotzin Meza
Joey Beltran vs. Igor Pokrajac
Seth Baczynski vs. Mike Pierce
Ben Alloway vs. Manuel Rodriguez
Brendan Loughnane vs. Mike Wilkinson
Cody Donovan vs. Nick Penner

Mendes gonna Mendes.

Hopefully he ends this one early, I hear The Zombie's looking for a fight in Japan and Mendes would be the perfect opponent for the Zombie to feast on.

...Who the **** is Yaotzin Meza?



EDIT: This guy is literally coming off of TKO loss to some guy on the regional circuit.


Is the UFC this desperate? Holy shit.

18-7-0. Lost his last fight under 3 minutes. How did he get a contract?

Yaotzin Meza (18-7)

Loss Andres Quintana (3-1) TKO Round 1
Win Ran Weathers (16-12) Decision
Win Eric Regan (15-21) Submission Round 2
Win Scott Pike (0-7) TKO Round 1
Win Nick Piedmont (6-3) Decision

Seems like a really easy win for Mendes.

The fight is this weekend and it's against a top five guy in the weight class, not many were up for it most likely.

I can think of one man who would answer that call

This just proves how weak this division is. (And I love the smaller weight classes) But Mendes tears through the division, loses to Aldo for the title, and is now fighting this guy (whoever the hell he is) and Cody freaking McKenzie before that...
