Again, Chad Mendes has been left with no opponent. As first reported by Sherdog.com, Clay Guida has an injury which has forced him to pull from his forthcoming UFC on FOX seven matchup against Mendes, which had been set to take place April 20 at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif.. It is the third opponent to pull from fights with Mendes in recent bouts, after Hacran Dias was scratched with an injury at UFC on FX 6 and Manny Gamburyan pulled from his UFC 157 game with Mendes after he was hurt in practice. Mendes (13-1) is among the top-five featherweights in the world based on this MMA Fighter Rankings. He’s an incredible wrestler with KO power, and because losing to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo in UFC 142, he’s 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, but it is potential Frankie Edgar, Cub Swanson, or Dennis Siver requires his place, although it’s likely if that is the case Mendes is going to be changed to a card. Formiga vs. Cariaso place for UFC on FX 8 A conflict between top-ranked flyweights is set to return this May in Brazil, as the UFC has added a matchup between Jussier Formiga and Chris Cariaso to the forthcoming 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 high contender John Dodson, while Cariaso (14-4) lost via submission to John Moraga at UFC 155, but both fighters are incredibly talented and a triumph over a another puts them straight into the flyweight title film. This is a pretty close fight, so expect the MMA odds to be competitive when they’re released. I would guess that Formiga are a small favorite over Cariaso, that, although talented, doesn’t possess the hype behind him that Formiga does. UFC Sweden 2 adds Cella vs. Troeng The UFC additional a battle involving TUF 17 middleweights to 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. MMAnytt.se 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 reduction being the barbarous spinning hook kick KO from Uriah Hall. With Troeng fighting before his hometown crowd and Cella come off among the worst KOs in current memory, anticipate Troeng to open as a strong -200 favorite, while Cella will surely be the underdog, and is definitely somebody you need ton’t put your cash on.
