Ricardo Lamas made a statement Saturday night at UFC 180, finishing Dennis Bermudez and stopping the featherweights seven-fight win streak.

In the process, he earned himself a call-out from recent title-contender Chad Mendes.

Mendes is coming off a loss to Jose Aldo, the second such defeat of his career. While the first was a knockout, the Team Alpha Male fighter pushed the UFC champion the distance in Brazil.
