Chad Mendes (pictured) entered UFC Fight Night 63 a 4.5-1 odds-on favorite to plaster Ricardo Lamas. While Mendes’ line was quite large, bettors would have been wise to put their money on “Money.”
Mendes and Lamas were both looking to bounce back from losses to reigning featherweight king Jose Aldo. Mendes did so in emphatic fashion by dropping Lamas with essentially the first punch he landed, then gave his opponent the business on the canvas for an easy TKO win.
Mendes also scored an additional $50,000 for “Performance of the Night.”
UFC Fight Night 63 took place inside Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia.
