Chad Mendes: A second fight against Jose Aldo would be completely different

UFC Featherweight Chad Mendes was the last man to face class champion Jose Aldo, and while that fight did not go exactly how Mendes had planned, it has given a wealth of valuable MMA title fight experience. The KO loss to Aldo remains the only blemish on Mendes' 11-1 record, and he seeks to rebound strongly at this Saturday's UFC 148 in Las Vegas.
