As UFC 129 fast approaches, most eyes will be on the two main event title fights that head the card. One of which will be the first appearance of featherweight champion Jose Aldo defending his belt against Mark Hominick.

One person, who will be sitting cageside with his eyes locked on that fight, will be current top 145-pound contender Chad Mendes.

The undefeated Team Alpha Male fighter blew through former Sengoku and Dream fighter Michihiro Omigawa in his last bout, and now has every intention of challenging the winner of Aldo and Hominick.

“I can tell you Chad will be sitting ringside in Toronto watching Aldo and Hominick fight, and he has all the hopes in the world that the winner of that will be his next fight. I believe he deserves it, I believe he’s ready for it, and I think it’s his time,” Mendes’ manager, Mike Roberts from MMA Inc., told MMAWeekly Radio recently.

Mendes and Florian are the only real challenges left for Aldo. Although by already announcing his appearance, it takes away some of the dramatics of the challenge.

Koch isn't too far away from a title shot and with a bunch of guys dropping weight more challenges will arise. Aldo vs Edgar would be a lot of fun but it doesn't necessarily need to happen in my opinion.
