Jose Aldo disliked Team Alpha Male's joke about Renan Barao matriculating at Duane "Bang" Ludwig Muay Thai classes, after Barao's loss to TJ Dillashaw, at UFC 173. The UFC featherweight champion reminded Radio Globo that the Nova Uniao team still has a big lead in wins against their Team Alpha Male rivals and said that Chad Mendes will be the scapegoat of that situation at UFC 176, on August 2.
I have already knocked Chad out. He has gone to the end of the line. He has ran the path to get credentials to fight for the belt again, although I don't think that he beat nobody with a big name since then. Anyway, someone will pay the price for that joke and it's going to be Chad.
Aldo explained why he got pissed with the Instagram picture (removed later).
We have never teased them, not even to promote the fights. We have always showed nothing but respect before and mostly after the fights. How many of their fighters have lost for one of our fighters? They did it for free in their first big win against us. Renan not only don't need their Muay Thai class, he can teach it to them. He will prove that in their immediate rematch that needs to be in Brazil.
Then, Aldo made his own joke.
By their logic, should we register Urijah Faber in a MMA course at Nova Uniao?
In the first meeting with Mendes, Aldo won by KO on the very late of a tough first round at UFC 142, on January of 2012. Mendes, the once again title challenger has been in a five win fight streak since then.
