USA TODAY: Chad Mendes meets Clay Guida at UFC on FOX 7
By mmajunkie@mmajunkie.com (Dann Stupp)




With officials unable to find a replacement for injured opponent Manny Gamburyan, Chad Mendes has been pulled from the Feb. 23 UFC 157 event altogether.

But the former title challenger is getting what is arguably a bigger fight when Mendes (13-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) meets fellow featherweight Clay Guida (30-13 MMA, 10-7 UFC) at UFC on FOX 7 on April 20, UFC President Dana White confirmed with USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) on Monday.

The event takes place at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. Mendes vs. Guida could be one of four fights featured on the network-televised main card, which follows prelims on FX and Facebook.

Since a failed title shot with champion Jose Aldo in early 2012, Mendes has posted back-to-back knockout wins over Cody McKenzie and Yaotzin Meza to put the division on notice. According to Mendes' manager, Mike Roberts, it's not surprising UFC officials couldn't find a replacement to keep him on the UFC 157 card.

"There's not a huge line of people that want to fight Chad, especially on two weeks' (notice)," he said. "But Chad is the best – if not, the second best – guy in that weight division, period. Chad's not going to turn anybody down. He believes he can beat anybody."

He'll get that opportunity against Guida, who has the same strengths (wrestling and cardio) as Mendes. The former lightweight recently made the drop to featherweight and suffered a split-decision loss to perennial contender Gray Maynard. However, the high-energy Guida rebounded in January and edged Hatsu Hioki via split decision.

In addition to Mendes vs. Guida, UFC on FOX 7 also features a previously announced headliner of lightweight champ Benson Henderson (18-2, 6-0) vs. Strikeforce import Gilbert Melendez (21-2, 0-0). Heavyweights Frank Mir (16-6, 14-6) and Daniel Cormier (11-0, 0-0) meet in the co-headliner.

The latest UFC on FOX 7 card includes:
• Champ Benson Henderson vs. Gilbert Melendez - for lightweight title
• Daniel Cormier vs. Frank Mir
• Nate Diaz vs. Josh Thomson
• Matt Brown vs. Dan Hardy
• Clay Guida vs. Chad Mendes
• Roger Bowling vs. Anthony Njokuani
• Jorge Masvidal vs. Tim Means
• Myles Jury vs. Ramsey Nijem
• Clifford Starks vs. Yoel Romero
• Norman Parke vs. Jon Tuck

I think people are sleeping on Clay, anyone think Mendes could go 3 rounds with Bendo or Sanchez?

I used to like Guida, many moons ago. Now...the way he's fighting and talking just burns my chopsticks. I hope Mendes gets his 3rd straight KO since losing to Jose. He's on a terror streak at the moment, and I think Clay's head banging take down and stall game is going to fall short.

P.s I think Mendes would destroy Sanchez at 145 or 155. Too fast and technical. Not sure how he'd fair against Bendo though. Better than his fight with Aldo however.
