UFC 142 video preview for 'Aldo vs Mendes' on Jan. 14 in Brazil (Extended)

Brock Lesnar may have just retired from MMA but I assure you, Maniacs, life goes on. In fact, the world's largest fight promotion will return to pay-per-view in just two weeks with its UFC 142: "Aldo vs. Mendes" pay-per-view event on Jan. 14, 2012, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

In the main event of the evening, perennial pound-for-pound great Jose Aldo will defend his featherweight championship for the third time inside the Octagon against undefeated wrestler and Team Alpha Male product Chad Mendes.

The co-main event features perhaps the most famous Brazilian fighter in the world, as "The Phenom," Vitor Belfort heads back home to rumble against Anthony Johnson. And when he's done, he'll coach The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Brazil opposite Wandelei Silva.

How's the card looking to you, folks?
