It didn’t take the UFC too long to re-book Chad Mendes, as the former No. 1 contender will face Clay Guida at UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Melendez. The card takes place April 20 from San Jose.
Mendes (13-1) was expected to face Manny Gamburyan next Saturday at UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche, but Gamburyan went down with an injury. UFC officials were unable to find an opponent on short notice for Mendes.
Guida (30-13) earned a win in his featherweight debut last month, topping Hatsu Hioki.
The exact position of the fight on the telecast is unknown at this time. MMAjunkie.com confirmed the bout with UFC president Dana White.
