Mendes faces Nik Lentz at UFC on Fox 9…
MMAjunkie recently interviewed No. 1 ranked UFC featherweight Chad Mendes about his upcoming fight with Nik Lentz set for UFC on Fox 9 on Saturday, December 14. You can check out some highlights below.
Mendes said on his potential contender status at featherweight: "I think if I go out there and destroy him, it should be me next. But ultimately, it's up to the UFC. They have a plan; they have stuff set in stone already. If they don't think it's ready, it's not going to happen. They're the boss and they tell me what to do. I basically just train my butt off and keep beating whoever they put in front of me, and eventually, they have to give it to me. That's how I'm looking at it."
Mendes has won four straight fights by knockout since losing against Jose Aldo for the featherweight title.
