That may be so, but he should be fighting guys like them at the very least. Who knows, he may surprise us against one. (Probably not Aldo or Pettis) His striking is looking better these days, and he has power. I'm not talking about his wins over easy opponents like McKenzie, but a knock out win over a tough guy in Elkins is impressive. Elkins is pretty durable and can usually take a lot of punishment. Mendes has power in his hands. I hope to see him continue to improve.
