UFC 179: Extended Preview

The awaited rematch between UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and No. 1 contender Chad Mendes will headline UFC 179 in Rio de Janeiro. In their first meeting, Aldo stopped then-unbeaten Mendes with one second remaining in the first round. Since then, Mendes has won five straight. Aldo, the only 145-pound champion in UFC history, has added three more successful title defenses since the Mendes bout and he looks to stamp a finish on this rivalry once and for all. Plus, a clash of light heavyweight contenders will co-headline, as Brazilian star Glover Teixeira faces off against Phil Davis.
