Chad is probably not too thrilled, but the UFC really needed this one as the headliner.
Still think Mendes is capable of the upset in Brazil

SUCH BS! I am a huge Alpha Male fan, so I am biased but seriously? Aldo pulls out of a main event, forcing them to cancel the damn thing, and he's rewarded with a home country advantage? This is ludicrous, I understand this is a company and they'll make more with him fighting in Brazil...but...really?

I hope Mendes takes it to him!
