    I have Mendes ranked pretty high at 145 but he's really going to have to wait in line for a good while before he gets another shot at Aldo.

    Dias is an OK fight for him but considering Mendes has wins over Koch and Swanson, I think he should've been put up against a higher ranked FW Lamas or Hioki or maybe the winner of Bart/Nunes. However as I said above, since Mendes is probably going to be waiting some time before he gets another shot. I think Edgar and Zombie will get shots first, Koch was in line before he got hurt and I think Denis Siver will be "in the mix" if he gets past Nagin. Therefore, this matchup helps re-establish Mendes and he'll probably still have to take a few more down the line.

    I like Dias and see a possible upset but he lacked the killer instinct in his debut in Brazil
