UFC 142: "Aldo vs. Mendes" is all set to pop off tomorrow night (Sat., Jan. 14, 2012) from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The pay-per-view (PPV) event features a featherweight fracas pitting division deity Jose Aldo defending his 145-pound strap against powerful wrestler, Chad Mendes.
Also on tap is a
middle catchweight battle that will see Vitor Belfort lock 'em up against a man who couldn't get any lower than 190-pounds and came in a whopping 11 pounds overweight, Anthony Johnson.
And you know he's motivated because his job could very well be on the line.
