Aldo shoves Mendes at UFC 179 media day


Jose Aldo will face Chad Mendes for the UFC featherweight championship. The fight will be a rematch of their earlier bout in which Aldo TKO'd Mendes in the first round.

Wasn't Mendez wanted for questioning for punching someone in a bar and running away?

Good post. VU when I get the chance.Rener Gracie is not a jiujitsu guy. He wrestled in high school, so he's a wrestler. -Ausgebicht

All good stuff I agree mainly.I would like to point out that Aldo also fell apart in the last round against Mark Hominick and feel that if he get's even remotely tired against Chad then he's going to mauled :(

Selective memory maybe?    Mendes got the same EXACT takedown from standing back control about 30 seconds after the grab...Aldo took one knee when Mendes lifted and tried to slam him, then stodd right back up.

Not that I think chad would've won anyway(at the time), but Aldo did grab the fence to stop the takedown. IMO that changed the hole fight.
