UFC 133: Jose Aldo vs Chad Mendes Possible

UFC President Dana White teased fans with the possibility of UFC featherweight champ Jose Aldo, fresh off a unanimous decision win over Mark Hominick at UFC 129, next facing undefeated Chad Mendes at UFC 133.

Mendes was last seen thrashing Michihiro Omigawa at UFC 126. He trains at Team Alpha Male with former WEC champ Urijah Faber, whom Aldo beat badly at WEC 48. 

Dana White's quote from the UFC 129 Post Fight Press Conference via MMA Mania:

"That's a curveball for me right now, (but) I think we're looking at Jose possibly fighting in Philly. ... Probably (against Chad Mendes). Kenny Florian couldn't be ready by then. Chad Mendes is 10-0, undefeated. Makes sense."

Jose Aldo, Champion (19-1)
Win Mark Hominick UFC 133 Unanimous Decision
Win Manny Gamburyan WEC 51 KO
Win Urijah Faber WEC 48 Unanimous Decision

Chad Mendes (10-0)
