UFC 176: For Chad Mendes, August Can’t Get Here Soon Enough

ufc 176

Chad Mendes states he doesn’t know anything about the “mock” sign-up of Renan Barao to attend a Bang Muay Thai class under the guidance of Duane Ludwig.

The picture, which Urijah Faber posted on Twitter after T.J. Dillashaw won the belt from Barao, caught the attention of UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo.

Aldo will be defending his title against Mendes at UFC 176 in August, and stated plans for “payback” against Team Alpha Male that night.

Well, “Money” took offense to that, posting a message to Aldo himself, writing, “Hey Jose Aldo I don’t know anything about that post but I do know on Aug 2nd I AM going to BEAT YOUR (Expletive).”

Back in 2012, Aldo landed a knee that finished Mendes in Brazil. The two will now meet in Mendes’ backyard of California.
