This is a huge mismatch on paper, but McKenzie could get the upset with his reach advantage and if Mendes isn't the same since the Jose' Aldo loss. Knee to the body by Mendes. Head kick by Mckenzie. I blinked and missed Mendes' huge shot that sent McKenzie down. HUGE BODY SHOT TO MCKENZIE'S solar plexus sends him down. Hammerfists.
Official Decision: Chad Mendes def. Cody McKenzie at :31 via TKO (punches) of Round One.
Rogan interviews Mendes. He says McKenzie has a long body and took advantage of it. I was right. Mendes isn't the same since the Aldo fight. He might be better....
