A while back Chad Mendes posted a picture of himself wearing a Vasco jersey, rivals of Flamengo football club and Aldo’s team of heart, trying to get some support for his fight in Rio de Janeiro. Apparently this didn’t sit well with Aldo, who appeared upset when asked about it, saying Mendes doesn’t know what he’s dealing with:
The hype he’s creating is only for himself in this fight. He doesn’t even understand the rivalry between Vasco and Flamengo. This isn’t going to be a classic, this is going to be Brazil against the US. The fans from Vasco will be with me and the ones from Flamengo will be against him even more now. He doesn’t know what he’s getting into and will have to deal with the consequences once the fight starts
