More, Chad Mendes was abandoned without an opponent. Initially reported by, Clay Guida has an injury that has forced him to pull from his upcoming UFC on FOX 7 matchup against Mendes, that was set to occur April 20 at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.. It is the third competitor to pull out of conflicts with Mendes in the past elections, following Hacran Dias was scratched with an accident at UFC on FX 6 and Manny Gamburyan pulled out of his UFC 157 match with Mendes after he had been hurt in training. Mendes (13-1) is among the top-five featherweights in the world based on this MMA Fighter Rankings. He is an amazing wrestler with KO power, and because dropping to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo at UFC 142, he’s bounced back with KO wins Cody McKenzie and Yaotzin Meza to reaffirm his spot as a top featherweight. No clue yet on who will replace Mendes, however it is potential Frankie Edgar, Cub Swanson, or Dennis Siver takes his spot, though it’s probably if that’s the case Mendes is going to be changed to a card. Formiga vs. Cariaso place for UFC on FX 8 A battle between top-ranked flyweights is set to go down this May in Brazil, as the UFC has included a matchup between Jussier Formiga and Chris Cariaso to the upcoming UFC on FX 8 card. was the first to break news of the bout. Formiga (14-2) is coming off a TKO reduction in his UFC debut to high rival John Dodson, while Cariaso (14-4) lost via entry to John Moraga at UFC 155, but both fighters are extremely talented and a win over one another puts them right back into the flyweight title picture. This is a fairly close battle, so expect the MMA chances to be aggressive when they are released. I would guess that Formiga would be a tiny favorite over Cariaso, that, while talented, does not have the hype behind him that Formiga does. UFC Sweden 2 adds Cella vs. Troeng The UFC additional a fight between TUF 17 middleweights into the coming UFC Sweden 2 card, as Swede Tor Troeng takes on American Adam Cella in the April 6 event scheduled to take place at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm. first reported the bout, which will will indicate the official UFC introduction of both fighters. Troeng (15-4-1) and also Cella (4-0) were both eliminated from TUF 17 after being knocked out on the show, Cella’s loss being the brutal spinning hook kick KO from Uriah Hall. With Troeng fighting in front of his hometown crowd and Cella come off one of the worst KOs in current memory, expect Troeng to open as a strong -200 favorite, while Cella will be the underdog, and is definitely someone you need ton’t place your cash on.
