I agree with him. The Aldo fight aside, Mendes has torn up the FW division with an undefeated record and was given Cody McKenzie and now the sleeper in Dias, while he's arguably a top 3 FW in the UFC right now.
That said, everybody else's dancecard is full, so unless he wanted to just sit around and wait for a higher profile opponent, this was probably one of the better fights he could get.
