Perennial UFC featherweight contender Mendes never managed to get his hands on the belt. But he did provide some incredible moments of action against brilliant opponents. ‘Money’ is a great wrestler and has genuine knockout power in his hands. Only recently retired he’d definitely still be a great man for a crisis.
As well as his fighting skills, he also loves hunting. Throughout his career he hunted much of his food, preferring the protein-rich wild game to supermarket-packaged meat. In sum, Mendes is a great fighter and an excellent shot. He’s not a bad chef either – especially if you love barbecue.
