UFC 142: Aldo vs Mendes

So the next UFC fight is right around this corner and takes place this Saturday (14th January 2012) so it's about time for another post! The event will be taking place in the HSBC arena in Rio de Janerio, Brazil.  I have included the fight card below.  Not sure about anyone else but for me the fight i am most looking forward to watching is the Belfort match!  The guy can be an animal and rightly deserves his nickname of the 'The Phenom' if you ask me!
