UFC 142 open media workout photos gallery for 'Aldo vs Mendes' on Jan. 14

Chad Mendes (left) and Jose Aldo (right) side by side on the beach in Brazil at the UFC 142 open media workouts today (Wed., Jan. 11, 2012).

UFC.com photographer Josh Hedges was on the scene at the Barra de Tijuca Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, today (Jan. 11, 2012) to shoot several of the UFC 142 combatants during the pay-per-view (PPV) event's open media workouts.

Naturally, the little but lethal men who will be featured in the main event of the evening -- Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes -- were on the scene to promote their clash, as well as work up one of the last few real sweats prior to fight night at the HSBC Arena this upcoming Saturday night (Jan. 14, 2012).

Co-main event participants, Vitor Belfort vs. Anthony Johnson, were also in attendance prior to their middleweight scrap, which is teed up to be one hell of an exciting showdown.
