After a slow start Aljamain Sterling’s mixed martial arts skills were on point, as he feinted with kicks to keep his opponent on the backfoot.
Sterling (13-2) won for the first time since a finish of Johnny Eduardo in Dec. 2015, which brought him to 12-0.
Now back in the win column after a pair of losses, Sterling should be boosted by his all-around performance after admitting doubts about his style. Mendes goes back to the drawing board after an upset of Frankie Saenz in his previous outing.
