“He knows how to defend the takedowns very well, I trained with him and it was hard for me to take him down. I can tell you he doesn’t need my help all that much, he’s pretty good at this”
What are your thoughts about Aldo VS. Mendes? Do you believe Mendes has chances?
The way I see it, Chad Mendes is a great athlete, a very mature kid, but honestly I don’t believe he’s ready to fight Jose Aldo. I think it’s too soon, he needed to fight few more times, but well… I’m not the one to decide that, it’s just my opinion on the subject. Jose Aldo is a great champion, you can tell he feels comfortable at the cage and it seems he does what he wants to do in there. He’s an impressive guy a while now I’ll do whatever it is I can do to help him out. It’s a pleasure training with a guy that talented. I can only say “thank you, Jose Aldo”.More of the interview that led to the comments in the first link
