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.

Check out the photo gallery from today's UFC 142 weigh in event (via UFC.com) after the jump.
