Chad Mendes-Cody McKenzie Added To UFC 148

An interesting featherweight bout has been added to the July 7 UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II card, as former No. 1 contender Chad Mendes takes on Cody McKenzie.

The UFC’s official site posted the bout, saying both fighters have verbally agreed to face off.

UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II will feature Chael Sonnen looking to secure the UFC middleweight title from Anderson Silva. It is not known where the Mendes-McKenzie bout will take place, but the prelims is a likely spot for it.

Mendes suffered his first career loss to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo earlier this year, suffering a first round knockout defeat.

McKenzie has won his last 11 fights by guillotine choke, including a victory over Marcus LeVesseurat UFC on FUEL TV: Korean Zombie vs. Poirier. This will be his first fight at featherweight.
