It was a historic tenth bout of UFC 164 in Milwaukee, as Chad Mendes scored not only his fourth consecutive T/KO victory in the featherweight division — he handed Clay Guida his first ever T/KO loss.
Mendes struggled a little with Guida’s frenetic footwork and wild striking to begin, but still landed the occasional shot, bloodying Guida’s nose before trying to secure a guillotine choke. Guida would escape, but get caught in a takedown where Mendes landed strong elbow shot.
In the second, a Mendes takedown led to hard knee strikes to the head and body as Guida struggled to rise.
A viscous right hand from Mendes stunned Guida in the third, which he quickly followed up with punches to the ground. Referee Yves Levigne called a halt to the bout at 0:30 of round three.
