Yet more, Chad Mendes was left without an opponent. As first reported by Sherdog.com, Clay Guida has an injury which has forced him to pull out of his upcoming UFC on FOX seven matchup against Mendes, that was set to take place April 20 at HP Pavilion at San Jose, Calif.. It is the third opponent to pull from conflicts with Mendes in recent bouts, after Hacran Dias was scratched with an injury at UFC on FX 6 and Manny Gamburyan pulled out of his UFC 157 game with Mendes later he had been hurt in training. Mendes (13-1) is among those top-five featherweights in the world based on the MMA Fighter Rankings. He’s an amazing wrestler with KO power, and because dropping to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo at UFC 142, he has bounced back with KO wins over Cody McKenzie and Yaotzin Meza to reaffirm his place as a leading featherweight. No hint yet on who’ll replace Mendes, however it is possible Frankie Edgar, Cub Swanson, or Dennis Siver requires his spot, though it’s likely if that’s the case Mendes will be changed to a card. Formiga vs. Cariaso set for UFC on FX 8 A battle between top-ranked flyweights is set to go down this May in Brazil, since the UFC has added a matchup between Jussier Formiga and Chris Cariaso into the upcoming UFC on FX 8 card. TATAME.com was the first to break news of the bout. Formiga (14-2) is coming off a TKO reduction in his UFC debut to top rival John Dodson, while Cariaso (14-4) lost via submission to John Moraga at UFC 155, but both fighters are extremely talented and a triumph over a another puts them straight back into the flyweight title picture. This is a fairly close battle, so anticipate the MMA chances to be competitive when they’re released. I’d guess that Formiga would be a small favorite over Cariaso, that, while talented, does not have the hype behind him that Formiga does.

Troeng (15-4-1) and also Cella (4-0) were eliminated from TUF 17 after being knocked out on the show, Cella’s reduction being the barbarous spinning hook kick KO from Uriah Hall. With Troeng fighting in front of his hometown crowd and Cella come off among the worst KOs in current memory, anticipate Troeng to start as a strong -200 favourite, while Cella will be the underdog, and is definitely someone that you shouldn’t place your money on.
