Eddie Mendez Signs With UFC
Posted by Joseph Lee on 11.08.2012



MMA Junkie reports that middleweight Eddie Mendez, a former Strikeforce fighter, has signed with the UFC.

Mendez and his management team at Iridium Sports confirmed the news, but did not reveal details. It's also known when he will debut and who he will fight.

Mendez wrote on Twitter: "Well it's official everyone. I signed with the UFC last night! Thank you to everyone for all of the support and love."

Mendez became a pro fighter in 2008 and has a 7-0-1 record (with one no-contest). Most of his fights came with regional promotions like Respect in the Cage and Total Fighting Alliance. He appeared in Strikeforce in late 2011 on the preliminary card of "Strikeforce: Melendez vs Masvidal". He defeated Fernando Gonzalez (17-9 at the time) via split decision. His most recent win was by unanimous decision against Fabio Nascimento (11-5).
