UFC 142 Fight Card: Aldo vs. Mendes

via cdn3.sbnation.com

The UFC will return to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on January 14th after a very successful UFC 134 event earlier this year. This will be the first PPV after the Fox deal kicks in, and will see all six preliminary fights airing on FX. The main event will see Brazilian Jose Aldo defend his UFC featherweight title against top contender Chad Mendes. The co-main will feature arguably the most popular fighter in Brazil, Vitor Belfort, taking on Anthony "Rumble" Johnson in his middleweight debut. The main card is rounded out with three excellent matchups, and it should be an excellent event. Check out the current card below (preliminary card after the jump):
