After successfully defending the UFC Featherweight title last month at UFC 136, Jose Aldo has his next challenger set as the UFC announced today that Aldo will face undefeated Chad Mendes at UFC 142 in Brazil.
UFC President Dana White spoke about the fight to FoxSports.com:
“Pound-for-pound superstar Jose Aldo will return home to fight in Brazil for the first time since 2007 when he defends his UFC featherweight title against unbeaten powerhouse Chad Mendes. Aldo hasn't lost in over five years, but Mendes has yet to lose in MMA, and after clearing out all the contenders put in his way, he believes he has what it takes to beat the champion.”
