UFC Poster 179 Aldo Mendes 2

If you can believe it, there is no UFC event this week. As a matter of fact, the octagon will actually be taking a brief hiatus for two straight Saturdays!

Don’t fret, because when the MMA promotion returns on October 25, it will be doing so with a vengeance.

A bitter rematch between reigning featherweight king Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes headlines UFC 179. Aldo knocked “Money” unconscious with a knee to the grill in their initial encounter.

A pivotal light heavyweight shootout with Phil Davis and Glover Teixeira serves as the co-main event.
