There’s a lot of talk heading into UFC 189 about the wrestling abilities of Chad Mendes, despite the fact he’s finished five of his last seven opponents with punches. So in other words, even though Conor McGregor has a ridiculously dangerous arsenal of strikes, Mendes has some nasty stand-up in his own right.
Case in point, the UFC has posted Mendes’ stoppage win over Clay Guida in 2013, which at the the time, was “Money’s” fourth straight win. The bout marked the first and only time in Guida’s 40 fight plus year career, that he was finished with strikes.
You can watch the fight below.
UFC 189 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
