UFC 164 results: Chad Mendes becomes first fighter to TKO Clay Guida

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Heading into UFC 164, Clay Guida had never lost a fight by KO or TKO. But Chad Mendes put a halt to that streak Saturday night at the Milwaukee's Bradley Center.

Mendes scored the victory 30 seconds into the third round. Not only was it the first TKO of Guida, it was Mendes' fourth consecutive KO win since dropping a bout to featherweight champion Jose Aldo Jr. last year.

Over the first two rounds, the Guida of recent vintage emerged -- the one who moves and moves and moves, but doesn't do a hell of a lot else. Mendes stuffed Guida's takedown attempts and effortlessly scored his own.

Early in the third, Mendes caught Guida flush on the jaw with a right hand, which sent Guida rocking backwards. Mendes pounced when Guida hit the mat and unleashed a series of right hands until Yves Lavigne stopped the bouts.

"That was a goal coming into the fight," Mendes said of becoming the first fighter to KO Guida. "That's what I wanted to do. I needed to make a big statement I want Jose Aldo, I want that belt."

Mendes improved to 15-1; Guida is now 31-14 with three losses in past three fights.
