Lamas vs. Mendes Announced As Main Event For “UFC Fight Night Virginia”

Mendes

After announcing that Bobby Green and Jorge Masvidal would meet at “UFC Fight Night Virginia”, the UFC announced that Ricardo Lamas would be facing Chad Mendes in the main-event of the card.

Lamas is coming off a dominant performance over Dennis Bermudez that saw ‘The Bully’ secure a submission win in the first round. The win extended his win-streak to 2 following a loss to Jose Aldo for the featherweight championship.

Mendes on the other hand will be stepping into the Octagon for the first time since his 5-round war with Jose Aldo at UFC 179. With a win over top-ranked Lamas, Mendes could very well find himself in a title eliminator matchup against Frankie Edgar, to face the winner of Aldo vs. McGregor.

The event will go down on April 4th in Fairfax, Virginia.
