UFC Chad Mendes

We’re just three short days away from UFC 179, so there’s very little that hasn’t been said between featherweight champion Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes (pictured).

The last piece of promotional work comes from UFC president Dana White’s “Embedded” series.

In the first episode, Aldo’s Muay Thai trainer and MMA legend Pedro Rizzo says Aldo’s more motivated than ever thanks to Mendes’ trash talking. Aldo also says that if Mendes thinks he’s the Mike Tyson of the division, then he’s the Muhammad Ali because he’s the greatest.

That’s a pretty solid comeback.

Aldo then says he won’t discuss Conor McGregor until after Saturday’s fight.

Mendes, meanwhile, debuts his hot girlfriend in the documentary.

UFC 179 goes down Saturday inside Maracanazinho Gymnasium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
