Chad Mendes Hoping For Title Shot By Years End


“I would really like to fight for the title this year. But ultimately it’s up to the UFC and these guys… Right now I’m going to take a little bit of time off. I mean, that was three camps back-to-back-to-back for me, so I just want to rest for a couple weeks.”

Chad “Money” Mendes tells the media at last Saturday’s Post-Fight Press Conference that he would like a second shot at the UFC’s featherweight title before the year is up.

Mendes is riding a three-fight-first-round-finishing streak at the moment which was caped off with a TKO over Darren Elkins during the UFC on FOX 7 preliminary card on FX.
