If you happened to skip Saturday night’s “UFC 142: Aldo vs. Mendes” fiesta, it certainly sucks to be you. Thankfully for those that didn’t purchase the pay-per-view, ESPN.com has provided the video highlights of the show’s featured attraction.
Featherweight champ Jose Aldo (Pictured) kicked off 2012 in spectacular fashion against Chad Mendes. After softening “Money” up with several lethal leg kicks, Aldo unleashed a devastating knee to the wrestler’s grill that instantly dropped him.
“Scarface” immediately followed up with two pinpoint shots to the face and the fight was called with just one tick remaining in the opening round.
Aldo bolted out of the Octagon and rushed the audience to enjoy the win with his fellow Brazilians.
UFC 142 took place Saturday inside HSBC Arena in Rio de Jenairo, Brazil.
