At UFC 142, Jose Aldo will attempt to remind fans why he is considered one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world with a win over Chad Mendes. While he has been able to continue winning in the UFC, Aldo was not quite as dominant as usual in wins over Mark Hominick and Kenny Florian.
In addition to the bout between Aldo and Mendes, Vitor Belfort will welcome Anthony Johnson to the middleweight division at UFC 142. After years of struggling with the 170-pound limit for the welterweight division, Johnson finally decided to make the move up in weight. The winner of the 185-pound matchup will likely find themselves within striking distance of a title shot.
Before Saturday's event, the fighters will hit the scales at HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Friday at 4:00 pm ET.
