Former UFC featherweight challenger Chad Mendes put on another impressive performance last night as he topped featherweight contender Nik Lentz in a three round beat dow. The fight was the co-co-main event of the UFC On Fox 9 card in Sacramento.
Mendes seemed to run out of steam at the end of the second round but we now know he came in fighting an illness. Even with a sinus infection Mendes managed to put on a dominant performance. Lentz rallied late in the fight but it wasn’t enough and Mendes took home the unanimous decision win.
Prior to his loss to Mendes, Lentz was on a three fight win streak since dropping down to 145lbs and has looked impressive. But “The Carny” never had any answers to Mendes’ early onslaught in the first round.
