To me this is one of the more lopsided fights on the card considering Mendes just came off a title shot in Jan, and Cody just won his first fight in May (which I was at) since the TUF Finale. 

My question is why such the big step down in competition for Mendes? Is this about Cody's following he's an obvious fan favorite, or am I missing something here about Mendes. 

So I want to know what price are you guys getting on this fight? My book still has it closed but if it's fairly priced I'm likely to be all over it. I just don't see Cody the one trick pony having a shot against such a strong gameplan fighter. TAM won't let it happen.

I'm hoping the McKenzitine/Wrestler factor comes into play here and we see Mendes around -250/-275.

Planning going big on Chad Mendes here if we can get a decent price.

nice new pic, MR, and you are probably right on -400 or worse

as much as I'd love to see -250, Knee, I can't see it

It seemed like last Cody fight, the only guy who didn't see the gullotine coming was LeVasseur. Mendes too good and strong to let that happen... even if he has to take it to decision

Im hoping it is priced at less than -300. May even combo that withs Silva's favorable price. If so this may be my biggest play. 

Thanks for the insight guys

I think I used up all the luck on that Venus avatar.  Hopefully, Stephanie Rice will be my new good luck charm!!!

I think Mendes was a bargain at -450 myself... I dont see him losing here at all
