    Chad Mendes has been abandoned with no opponent. Initially reported by Sherdog.com, Clay Guida has an injury that has forced him to pull out of his upcoming UFC on FOX 7 matchup against Mendes, that had been set to take place April 20 at HP Pavilion at San Jose, Calif.. It is the third competitor to pull from fights with Mendes in the past elections, following Hacran Dias was scratched with an injury at UFC on FX 6 and Manny Gamburyan pulled out of his UFC 157 game with Mendes later he was hurt in training. Mendes (13-1) is among the top-five featherweights in the world according to the MMA Fighter Rankings. He is an incredible wrestler with KO power, and because dropping to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo in UFC 142, he has bounced back with KO wins over Cody McKenzie and Yaotzin Meza to reaffirm his place as a top featherweight. No hint yet on who will replace Mendes, but it’s potential Frankie Edgar, Cub Swanson, or Dennis Siver requires his spot, though it’s probably if that’s the case Mendes is going to be changed to a card. Formiga vs. Cariaso place for UFC on FX 8 A battle between top-ranked flyweights is set to go down this May in Brazil, since the UFC has included a matchup between Jussier Formiga and Chris Cariaso to the forthcoming UFC on FX 8 card. TATAME.com was the first to break news of the bout. Formiga (14-2) is coming off a TKO loss in his UFC debut to high rival John Dodson, while Cariaso (14-4) lost via entry to John Moraga at UFC 155, but both fighters are incredibly talented and a triumph over a another puts them right into the flyweight title picture. This is a pretty close fight, so expect the MMA chances to be competitive when they are released. I would guess that Formiga are a small favorite over Cariaso, that, although talented, does not possess the hype behind him that Formiga does. UFC Sweden 2 adds Cella vs. Troeng The UFC additional a battle involving TUF 17 middleweights into the coming UFC Sweden 2 card, as Swede Tor Troeng takes on American Adam Cella at the April 6 event scheduled to take place at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm. MMAnytt.se first reported that the bout, which will will mark the official UFC debut of both fighters. Troeng (15-4-1) and Cella (4-0) were eliminated from TUF 17 after being knocked out on the show, Cella’s reduction being the brutal spinning hook kick KO from Uriah Hall. With Troeng fighting in front of his hometown crowd and Cella come off among the worst KOs in recent memory, anticipate Troeng to start as a strong -200 favorite, while Cella will be the underdog, and is definitely someone you need ton’t put your money on.
