Chad Mendes toppled Ricardo Lamas in short order in the UFC Fight Night 63 main event.
The top-ranked contender at 145-pounds cracked Lamas, and followed up with consistent ground and pound. It is an important win that could lead to a third fight against Jose Aldo, but there are a lot of moving parts at featherweight before he can claim the title shot.
The co-main event provided an interesting decision and post-fight antics as Al Iaquinta defeated Jorge Masvidal by split decision.
