Following last weekend’s dominant win over Ricardo Almeida, Chad Mendes is hoping for a title shot.
With Aldo vs. McGregor not going down until July, time on the shelf takes some serious “Money” out of Mendes’ pocket. The crew at UFC tonight, on FOX Sports 1, broke down some potential options for the Team Alpha Male fighter, one that includes fighting his longtime mentor, Urijah Faber.
UFC TONIGHT Guest Host Michael Bisping on who Chad Mendes should fight next: “There’s an Irishman out there who may not have liked what he saw Saturday morning. But I don’t think Chad should wait for the winner of Aldo – McGregor. I think he should fight the winner of Frankie Edgar and Urijah Faber.”
UFC TONIGHT Host Kenny Florian on Mendes’ next fight: “I’d like to see him fight No. 8 ranked Charles Oliveira next. He shouldn’t wait. Who knows what’s going to happen with Aldo – McGregor. Aldo might go to lightweight and Chad will be right back in there for the title.”
