Yet more, Chad Mendes was abandoned with no opponent. Initially reported by, Clay Guida has an injury that has forced him to pull out of his forthcoming UFC on FOX 7 matchup against Mendes, which had been set to take place April 20 at HP Pavilion at San Jose, Calif.. It’s the third opponent to pull from conflicts with Mendes in recent bouts, following Hacran Dias was scratched with an injury at UFC on FX 6 and Manny Gamburyan pulled from his UFC 157 match with Mendes later he had been hurt in training. Mendes (13-1) is one of those top-five featherweights in the world according to the MMA Fighter Rankings. He is an incredible wrestler with KO power, and since losing to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo in UFC 142, he has bounced back with KO wins Cody McKenzie and Yaotzin Meza to reaffirm his place as a top featherweight. No clue yet on who’ll replace Mendes, however it’s potential Frankie Edgar, Cub Swanson, or Dennis Siver takes his place, although it’s probably if that is the case Mendes will be shifted to a later card. Formiga vs. Cariaso set for UFC on FX 8 A conflict between top-ranked flyweights is set to go down this May in Brazil, since the UFC has added a matchup involving 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 contender John Dodson, while Cariaso (14-4) lost via submission to John Moraga at UFC 155, but both fighters are extremely talented and a win over a another puts them right into the flyweight title film. This is a fairly close fight, so expect the MMA odds to be aggressive when they’re released. I would guess that Formiga are a small favorite over Cariaso, who, although 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 to the coming UFC Sweden 2 card, as Swede Tor Troeng takes on American Adam Cella at the April 6 event scheduled to occur at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm. first reported that the bout, which will will mark the official UFC debut of both fighters. Troeng (15-4-1) and Cella (4-0) were both eliminated from TUF 17 after being pumped out on the show, Cella’s loss 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, expect Troeng to start as a solid -200 favourite, while Cella will surely be the underdog, and is definitely someone that you shouldn’t place your cash on.
