Chad Mendes: I will be looking to put Jose Aldo on his back at UFC 142Posted on November 22, 2011, 09:41 AM by Anton Gurevich
Chad "Money" Mendes will have his shot at becoming a champion in the UFC, facing the Featherweight kingpin Jose Aldo in the main event of UFC 142. According to Mendes, Jose Aldo doesn't like to be on the ground, and that's exactly where he he's going to put him. Still, Mendes promised to have his striking just as sharp, with sights on proving he's a well rounded Mixed Martial Artist against Jose Aldo. The card will take place at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, co-headlined by the Middleweight clash between Vitor Belfort and Anthony Johnson.
