Mendes vs. Lentz Added to Sac Event

Featherweight phenom Chad Mendes books a hometown bout for FOX...
Nik Lentz, undefeated since dropping to featherweight and solidly in the top ten, has volunteered to enter hostile territory and fight Chad Mendes, one of the most feared fighters in the division. That fight will take place December 14 in Sacramento, Calif., the home of Mendes' Team Alpha Male and air on FOX.

Mendes has been on an absolute tear, stopping his last four opponents inside the distance and three of those within the first round. Originally slated to fight Steven Siler in November, Lentz jumped at the chance to face the perennial top-ranked contender and force title shot considerations with a victory.

The Sacramento event will be headlined by a lightweight title fight between Anthony Pettis and Josh Thomson and also feature Urijah Faber facing Michael McDonald at bantamweight.

With Lentz moving into another bout, Steven Siler will now face Dennis Bermudez on November 6th at the UFC Fight For The Troops event.
