The UFC has added a “money” fight to UFC 232.


Chad “Money” Mendes will square off with rising Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 232 in Las Vegas. The company announced the fight on Tuesday.

Mendes (18-4) returned from a two-year absence on July 14 to score a first-round TKO of Myles Jury, snapping a two-fight losing streak. It was the 10th career stoppage win of the Team Alpha Male standout’s career.

Volkanovski (18-1), meanwhile, has put together one of the most low-key current hot streak in the UFC. The Australian has won 15 consecutive bouts, including all five since joining the UFC. He earned a unanimous decision over the always-tough Darren Elkins on the same Boise card in which Mendes defeated Jury for his most recent victory.

Love this fight and the silver lining in the Halloway injury woes is that the division sort of sorted itself out behind Ortega and him. The winner of this fight will be on a short list for the next title shot along with the Mocianno/Bektic winner and Frankie Edgar. If Halloway beats T-city that’s a lot of fresh matchups for him that all seem like guaranteed excitement.

Volkanovski gets a massive step up in competition here.

I've been saying that Volkanowski and Bektic could both use a step up and they both got top 5 guys. And really I wouldn't be surprised if 1 or both win. Should be a great fight nonetheless.
