UFC full fight video: Frankie Edgar punches way to title shot with KO of Chad Mendes

Watch Frankie Edgar vs. Chad Mendes full fight video to see Edgar earn his second shot at featherweight gold with a first-round finish of Mendes at The Ultimate Fighter 22 Finale in Las Vegas on Dec. 11, 2015.

A former lightweight champion and one-time featherweight title challenger, Edgar had to work his way towards another crack at the 145-pound belt and Mendes was the last hurdle. It took Edgar all of 2:28 to find Mendes’ chin and shut him down, giving him his fifth straight win and a meeting with Jose Aldo at UFC 200.

Edgar’s next challenge seems him dropping down to the bantamweight division for the first time. He fights top contender Pedro Munhoz in the main event of UFC on ESPN 15 this Saturday.
