UFC 142: Fighter Grades

This past Saturday night, Jose Aldo proved that not only is he the best featherweight in the world, but also one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in MMA when he knocked out No. 1 contender Chad Mendes in the final second of the first round.

Also, Vitor Belfort proved size is overrated, as he submitted an extremely overweight Anthony Johnson in the first round of their "middleweight" bout.

In other action, Edson Barboza scored what will be the knockout of the year when he landed a wheel kick that sent Terry Etim in to la-la land. Erick Silva got, what most believe, robbed of a knockout victory over Carlo Prater, and Rousimar Palhares added another leg to his trophy case when he submitted Mike Massenzio.

Once again, it's time to take a look at the performances of each main card fighter and hand out some grades.
