Being that the fight is in May and Lamas is the "contender in waiting", this feels like he's taking a legit #1 contender fight against Zombie.
As much as I love Mendes, he's the biggest threat to Lamas's title shot right now at 145, but win or lose, he's not getting a rematch against Aldo anytime soon....
Let's see one of those 155ers who've dropped down take a swing at Mendes
