Jose Aldo is set to defended his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight title against top-ranked 145-pound contender, Chad Mendes, later this month (Oct. 25, 2014) at UFC 179 from Maracanazinho Gymnasium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
This will be a rematch of their UFC 142 showdown back in Jan. 2012, which ended in spectacular fashion with one second remaining in the first round after Aldo connected with a cartoon-like knee to the face of "Money" that ejected him violently across the Octagon.
As it usually does, UFC has released an extended preview hyping up the much-anticipated pay-per-view (PPV) main event rematch. One that has a bit more juice than the first thanks to a heated exchange at a recent promotional event (watch it here), which has "Money" feeling like he's inside the head of "Scarface."
Time will tell.
