UFC 164: Chad Mendes vs Clay Guida targeted for Milwaukee event

Matt Roberts

A bout between Chad Mendes and Clay Guida is in the planning stages for UFC 164 in August. Get all the latest details below.

Let's try this again.

If UFC 164 was looking to add more wrestling to its line-up, it just found the perfect match. Last night's UFC Tonight episode mentioned the upcoming (August 31, 2013) Milwaukee pay-per-view event is targeting a bout between featherweight contenders Chad Mendes and Clay Guida.

Both men were originally scheduled to compete against one another at the recent UFC on Fox 7 show, but an injury to Mendes halted UFC's big plans. Mendes instead faced Darren Elkins, knocking him out in the first round.

Mendes (14-1) has knocked out his last 3 opponents (Cody McKenzie and Yaotzin Meza to go along with Elkins) in a combined 3:34 and has looked like a new man ever since suffering his lone career defeat, a knockout loss to Jose Aldo at UFC 142.

Before that, Mendes was widely known as a powerhouse wrestler and an incredible athlete, able to take opponents out of their games while avoiding any danger, which led to his impressive decision victories over the likes of Cub Swanson, Erik Koch and Rani Yahya.

Guida (30-13) made a name for himself with several memorable "Fight of the Year"-esque battles at lightweight, had not been putting on the types of performances fans and his promoter expect from him as of late. After dropping down to 145 pounds, he scored a razor thin decision victory over Hatsu Hioki to put himself in prime position to make a run at featherweight.

If he can get past Mendes, a title shot could be on the horizon.
