Featherweights Chad Mendes, Hacran Dias Collide Down Under at December’s UFC on FX 6
A featherweight showdown between Chad Mendes
and Hacran Dias
has been added to UFC on FX
, promotion officials recently announced.
Five fights are now official for the event, which takes place at
the Gold Coast Convention Centre in Gold Coast, Australia. The
evening’s main card will air live on FX on Dec. 14 in the United
States, and Fuel TV will handle the preliminary proceedings
immediately prior to the main draw broadcast. “Ultimate Fighter:
Australia vs. U.K.” coaches George
Sotiropoulos and Ross
Pearson will top the bill, which also features a middleweight
meeting between Rousimar
Palhares and Hector
Mendes, 27, challenged Jose Aldo for
UFC featherweight title unsuccessfully on Jan. 14, falling by
knockout to “Scarface” with just one second remaining in the first
round of their UFC 142 clash. “Money” rebounded from the defeat,
however, earning a 31-second knockout over “TUF 12” vet Cody
McKenzie courtesy of a crippling body shot at UFC 148.
Like his upcoming foe, Dias, 28, has tasted defeat just once as a
professional. The Nova Uniao representative rides a nine-fight
winning streak heading into his collision with Mendes, most
recently outpointing former Jungle Fight champion Iuri
Alcantara in his June 23 Octagon debut at UFC 147.
