Aldo vs. Mendes 2 to headline UFC 176

Aldo vs. Mendes 2 to headline UFC 176

Since losing via a perfectly timed flying knee with just one second left in the opening round of their first meeting, Chad ‘Money’ Mendes has been itching to get another title shot against longtime UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo.

Mendes has won five straight since the loss including three by way of knockout.  Aldo has defended his title three times since the win over Mendes, and another win could once again propel Aldo toward the top of the pound-for-pound best fighter list.

UFC officials have announced that UFC 176 live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., will be headlined by the Aldo-Mendes rematch, Aug. 2

No other fights for the card have officially been annouced.
