By the time he's done in Brazil, Gray Maynard will have spent a little more than three weeks helping Jose Aldo, the UFC featherweight champion, prepare for his next title defense against Chad Mendes at UFC 142 on Jan. 14.

And while it seems like a no-brainer for Aldo to train with Maynard for this fight, considering Maynard is built very much like Mendes, the idea was actually Maynard's, not the champ's.

"I've talked to him backstage at the UFC's and [the UFC 136] press conference in Houston," Maynard told MMAFighting.com recently. "[He] really seemed like a humble, nice guy. So, I wanted to reach out to him to help."

Maynard has trained with some of the best fighters in the world at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, and more recently at the American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, Calif., but he believes Aldo may top them all

Gray needs to lessen up his grip on JO-ZAY'S sack.

It's guys like Maynard that help the sport grow, to reach out and help another fighter is what i like to see, like when Randy taught Brock a few things after they fought, or recently Davis helping Gustafsson out after they fought, it's a classy thing to do, and Maynard can sure teach Aldo a few things in regards to wrestling.
