UFC 142: Aldo vs. Mendes Results!

And so the UFC event 142 is all over and despite the slightly weak card in my opinion it was a very decent event!  Am glad 'The Phenom' Belfort managed to pull off the win after Johnson's failure to cut the weight limit, but was it really in doubt? Nah!  Not only did Belfort managed to defend to the highest standard when Johnson managed to pull off a few take downs, Belfort also submitted Johnson needing only the single take down! 

Other highlights involve Barboza's awesome KO via a wheel kick and the decision to disqualify Silva for alleged illegal blows to back of head (which i am not sure about but i guess the ref has to call it as he sees it.  Let me know what you thought of UFC 142 in the comments!  What was your favourite fight?  Anything you disagree with or wished turned out differently?
