UFC 142: aldo vs mendes Live Odds

UFC 142: Aldo vs Mendes was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on January 14, 2012 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Chad "Money" Mendes had his chin foreclosed on by featherweight champion Jose Aldo in the main event of UFC 142 on Saturday night.

Coming into the bout, Mendes was seen as the biggest threat to Aldo's reign, but it only took one round for the Brazilian to connect on a huge knee to crush the Team Alpha Male member's title aspirations.

Jose Aldo vs Chad Mendes:

It’s Mendes who lands first with inside leg kicks, four of them to the left knee of the champ. Aldo throws one in return, then another, and they’re hard. Mendes ducks a left hook and shoots a double-leg that’s easily slipped by the champ. Another whipping leg kick crashes into Mendes’ thigh and destabilizes the challenger. He fires one back but it grazes Aldo low.

The champ wants to get straight back to business, and when they do, he zaps Mendes with a hard uppercut. Mendes sees another shot blocked and takes another chopping kick. Aldo denies another shot from Mendes and continues stalking his challenger around the cage. Mendes shoots and gets Aldo down this time, but the champ is down for only a split-second. Mendes grabs a rear waistlock on the feet and nearly whips Aldo down, but the Brazilian grabs onto the cage. He’s warned by ref Yamasaki.

Mendes is glued to Aldo’s back, kneeing him in the thigh. Aldo turns around and simultaneously raises his left leg, clubbing Mendes with a knee to the face. The wrestler falls straight backwards and Yamasaki waves it off before Aldo can do further damage. Aldo darts out of the cage and into the crowd, where he’s engulfed by a sea of his ecstatic countryman. The knockout comes officially with just one second remaining, 4:59 of the first round.
