Jose Aldo vs Chad Mendes fight video simulation for UFC 142

UFC 142: "Aldo vs. Mendes" features the headlining fight of Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes for the promotion's featherweight title, which goes down this Saturday night (Jan. 14, 2012) live on pay-per-view from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The boys over at THQ recently simulated the 145-pound clash with their "UFC Undisputed 3" video game, matching up "Junior" against "Money" to see who brings home the gold.

The Results?

After 25 simulations, Mendes wins the first round 80-percent of the time, hits 72-percent of his takedowns and only gets submitted once in 48 attempts. Aldo, however, lands 50-percent more strikes than his opponent and wins 14 out of the 25 simulated contests. In other words, "Junior" defends.

Anyone think this fight of wrestler versus striker plays out any differently this weekend?
