Yet more, Chad Mendes was left without an opponent. Initially reported by Sherdog.com, Clay Guida has an injury that has forced him to pull out of his upcoming UFC on FOX seven matchup against Mendes, which had been set to occur April 20 at HP Pavilion at San Jose, Calif.. It is the third competitor to pull from conflicts with Mendes in recent bouts, after Hacran Dias was scratched with an accident at UFC on FX 6 and Manny Gamburyan pulled from his UFC 157 game with Mendes later he was hurt in training. Mendes (13-1) is one of those top-five featherweights in the world according to 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 top featherweight. No clue yet on who’ll replace Mendes, however it’s possible Frankie Edgar, Cub Swanson, or Dennis Siver requires his spot, although it’s probably if that’s 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. TATAME.com was the first to break news of this bout. Formiga (14-2) is coming off a TKO loss in his UFC debut to top contender John Dodson, while Cariaso (14-4) lost via submission to John Moraga at UFC 155, but both fighters are extremely talented and a triumph over one another puts them right back into the flyweight title film. This is a fairly close fight, so expect the MMA chances to be competitive when they’re released. I’d guess that Formiga are a small favorite over Cariaso, that, although talented, does not possess the hype behind him that Formiga does. UFC Sweden 2 adds Cella vs. Troeng The UFC added a battle involving TUF 17 middleweights into the upcoming 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 in front of his hometown crowd and Cella come off among the worst KOs in recent memory, expect Troeng to open as a strong -200 favorite, while Cella will surely be the underdog, and is definitely someone you need ton’t place your money on.
