What did Chad Mendes do wrong?

Just kind of a confusing topic for me. He lost to Aldo (Only one of his career) and then gets put on three undercards in a row, all against people who are nowhere close to his caliber as a fighter.

Cody McKenzie (We all know how that went)

Yaotzin Meza (I have no clue who this guy is and apparently wikipedia doesn't know either)

And now Darren Elkins.

Did I miss something? Did he get in bed with Dana's wife or something?

Just irritates me to see such talent go to waste versus cans.

How is he going to waste? He is young.

I know at least yatzee was a late replacement. Elkins isn't that bad. I just don't think they care for him knocking off contenders like Cub and Lamas they are trying to build.

He will get a big time opponent after this one I think.

Well, he did get arrested for a bar fight.

But most of his original opponents pull out it seems like.

I thought that was a mixup or something. I can't remember for sure though.

They're not purposely giving him scrubs. This fight marks the third time in a row where his opponent got changed due to injury.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.
