The UFC featherweight division just added another name to its already stacked roster.

Former 145-pound title contender Chad Mendes made his return to the Octagon after a two year suspension following failing a drugs test for a banned substance, and the team Alpha Male member made sure to make a statement with a win on Saturday night in Boise.

Mendes finished Myles Jury via TKO in round one, proving he still has plenty to offer to the rest of the featherweight weight class. In victory, he jokingly called for a contest with Brock Lesnar, before asking for a bout with anyone in the top five of the division.
