Video: Jose Aldo shoves Chad Mendes at UFC 179 media day in Brazil, nearly recreates 'Jones vs. Cormier' brawl

Gentlemen, can we have a little decorum please?

I have a feeling these two don't like each other.

Maybe it was all that back-and-forth talk about who the real pussy is, and which fighter is taking steroids, and blah-blah-blah. But Chad Mendes is apparently under Jose Aldo's skin, deep enough to draw a media day shove from "Junior" during their UFC 179 press duties in Brazil.

Sound familiar?

It should, since we just had a near-riot break out inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, when Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier had a knock-down, drag-out brawl after butting heads (literally) at the UFC 178 media day (see the video here).

While the action appears to have gotten started a few weeks early, the upcoming UFC 179: "Aldo vs. Mendes 2" pay-per-view (PPV) event officially goes down on Sat., Oct. 25, 2014, inside the Maracanãzinho Gymnasium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Assuming we can make it that long without another injury.
