UFC 142: Aldo vs. Mendes, Johnson vs. Belfort Open WorkoutsPosted on January 12, 2012, 06:23 AM by Anton Gurevich
UFC 142 headliners Jose Aldo, Chad Mendes, Vitor Belfort and Anthony Johnson participated in an open workouts session ahead of this weekend's stacked fight card in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The event is headlined by Jose Aldo's third UFC Featherweight title defense against Chad "Money" Mendes, while Vitor Belfort welcomes Anthony Johnson to the UFC Middleweight division in the co-main event of the night.
Rest of the main card features high profile bouts such as Rousimar Palhares vs. Mike Massenzio, and Edson Barboza vs. Terry Etim. This is the second Rio card in the modern UFC era, after Anderson Silva successfully defended his title against Yushin Okami back at UFC 134.
