UFC RIO 142 RESULTS: Jose Aldo KO's Chad Mendes, Vitor Belfort Submits Anthony 'Rumble' Johnson in Brazil - 1/14/12


UFC RIO aka UFC 142: ALDO VS MENDES was held Saturday, January 14, 2012, at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

In the main event, UFC Featherweight Champion Jose "Scarface" Aldo successfully defended his 145-pound UFC title for the third time. Aldo had previously defended the title twice in the WEC before moving over to the UFC with the rebranded title. Aldo's first two UFC title defenses resulted in decision victories, a contrast to his days in the WEC when he rattled off 6 straight knockouts. In a return to form, with just one second left in the first round, Aldo knocked out previously undefeated Chad "Money" Mendes. Aldo landed a perfectly timed knee to Mendes' face that dropped the Alpha Male fighter dead in his tracks.
