Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes full fight video preview: UFC 179

Although he was viciously knocked out the first time he challenged Jose Aldo for the featherweight championship, Chad Mendes scored four knockouts in five victories immediately after to sore a rematch. We'll find out if he's better the second time around in the main event of tonight's (Sat., Oct. 25, 2014) UFC 179 pay-per-view (PPV) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.


"He's anxious indeed, but not to rip my head off, but to stay on the ground again sleeping. I've been following Chad's fights, and he's not fought anyone ranked in the top of the division. He's never had a true test. I've always had tougher adversaries than him, so when he confronts me, he'll see who the champion is, and then he's going to have to accept it."


"The one mistake that I made in that fight is that I let up right at the last second and you can't do that with a guy as skilled as Aldo. It's something that has played in my mind over and over again. It's something I'm not going to let happen again, ever. I've gotten so much better; this is a new and improved Chad Mendes. I'm going to be looking to take his head off." will deliver LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 179 fight card on fight night, starting with the Fight Pass "Prelims" matches online, which are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. ET, and then the remaining under card balance on FOX Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET before the PPV start time at 10 p.m. ET.
