The Ultimate Fighting Championship will host a media conference call with the stars of the upcoming UFC RIO: ALDO vs. MENDES card on Wednesday, January 4, 2012, at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT.

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and title challenger Chad Mendes will participate, while middleweight co-main event stars Vitor Belfort and Anthony Johnson will also be available to discuss their upcoming bout.

As usual Bloody Elbow will be on the call. Follow Matthew Roth for instant updates via twitter (@mattroth512). Any major quotes and news will be posted after the jump following the conclusion of the media call.

UFC 142 will be the UFC's first event of 2012 and the UFC's return to Brazil after a fantastic card the summer of 2011. Since that event Brazil has become very supportive of MMA and its fighters. Expect to see the same passion at UFC 142.
