    Chad Mendes wanted Ricardo Lamas at UFC 157, Lamas said he's already booked - Bloody Elbow

    Chad Mendes found himself without a UFC 157 opponent after Manny Gamburyan backed out, and asked Ricardo Lamas to step up. But Lamas says he's already booked for a bout in May.
    chad mendes ✔ @chadmendes

    So manny's out. How bout we find out who the real number one contender is @ricardolamasmma

    Ricardo Lamas ✔ @RicardoLamasMMA

    @chadmendes I already accepted a fight in may, waiting to announce it, but I'm sure our paths will cross.

    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

    Frankie is always up for a fight. Maybe he'd be willing to step in.

    He's suspended for 6 months if I remember correctly. Could be cleared early by a doctor but if he's got a broken orbital we aren't going to see The Answer anytime soon.
    "I don't want them to like me, because when I'm in the ring, punches fly to the face. It is not a tenderness time. I am not falling in love. And he knows that when the fight starts I kick faces."
    "I think you should be able to kick in the head, it’s a fun thing to do."

    It didn't look that bad. I'm sure he'll be back sooner than that.

    I don't know what you do with Mendes at this point. He's like a MW Sonnen in that he lost his title fight but can still beat most of his division; except Mendes doesn't sell the same way.

    I'm hoping we see Gil drop to FW and get Mendes/Gil.

    If Frankie wasn't coming off 3 losses in a row now him and Mendes would be a good match to go with as they are both in same place as far as title fights go. I think Frankie is going to get a match that favours him a bit more at this point though.

    They've pulled Mendes from the card, I'm thinking he gets a better matchup announced in the coming days....
