UFC 142: Rousimar Palhares vs Mike Massenzio video fight talk

In advance of their middleweight clash at UFC 142: "Aldo vs. Mendes" this Saturday night (Jan. 14, 2012) at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 185-pound up-and-comers Rousimar Palhares and Mike Massenzio break down their fight night strategies in the above video.

Can Massenzio stay out of the dreaded "Toquinho" heel hook?

Also getting a closer look is the welterweight war between Erick Silva and Carlo Prater. "Indio" has his eyes on the prize, but he'll first have to get past the wily veteran this weekend.
