MMA ODDS AND ENDS FOR FRIDAY: GUIDA INJURED, MENDES LEFT WITHOUT OPPONENT YET AGAIN

Chad Mendes has been abandoned without an opponent. As first reported by Sherdog.com, Clay Guida has an injury which has forced him to pull out of his forthcoming UFC on FOX seven matchup against Mendes, which had been set to occur April 20 at HP Pavilion at San Jose, Calif.. It’s 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 from his UFC 157 game with Mendes later he was hurt in training. Mendes (13-1) is one of those top-five featherweights in the world according to the MMA Fighter Rankings. He’s an amazing wrestler with KO power, and because losing to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo at UFC 142, he’s bounced back with KO wins Cody McKenzie and Yaotzin Meza to reaffirm his spot as a top featherweight. No clue yet on who will replace Mendes, however it is possible Frankie Edgar, Cub Swanson, or Dennis Siver requires his place, although it’s probably if that’s the case Mendes will be changed to a later 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, as the UFC has included a matchup between Jussier Formiga and Chris Cariaso to the upcoming UFC on FX 8 card. TATAME.com was the first to break news of the bout. Formiga (14-2) is coming off a TKO reduction in his UFC debut to high contender John Dodson, while Cariaso (14-4) lost via submission to John Moraga at UFC 155, but both fighters are incredibly talented and a triumph over one another puts them right into the flyweight title picture. This is a pretty close fight, so anticipate the MMA odds to be competitive when they’re released. I’d guess that Formiga are a tiny favorite over Cariaso, who, while talented, doesn’t have the hype behind him that Formiga does. UFC Sweden 2 adds Cella vs. Troeng The UFC added a fight between 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 occur at Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm. MMAnytt.se first reported the bout, which will will indicate the official UFC introduction of both fighters. Troeng (15-4-1) and also Cella (4-0) were both eliminated from TUF 17 after being pumped out on the show, Cella’s loss being the brutal spinning hook kick KO from Uriah Hall. With Troeng fighting before his hometown crowd and Cella come off one of the worst KOs in recent memory, expect Troeng to open as a strong -200 favorite, while Cella will be the underdog, and is definitely someone you need ton’t put your cash on.
