(Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes UFC 179 highlights, via UFC on FOX)
In case you missed the action on Saturday night, check out this video recap of the five-round war between Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes at UFC 179 in Rio. Aldo came out of the fight looking worse for the wear, but took four out of five rounds on all three judges scorecards.
Below: Aldo and Mendes are interviewed after the bout, and the champ discusses the late-punches controversy at the end of round 1. Aldo lands a great diss on Conor McGregor — “I’m the king, Chad’s the prince, and now we have a joker” — while Mendes just promises to kick McGregor’s ass.
And speak of the devil…
Conor McGregor gives his thoughts on the fight and gives respect to both men for a “phenomenal contest.” But of course, he could beat either of them and thinks he’s next in line for a title shot.
Anderson Silva arrives at the arena to a hero’s welcome.
Highlights from the Phil Davis vs. Glover Teixeira co-main event (such as they are)…
…and Davis’s awkward post-fight interview in which he quotes Passenger 57 and calls out Anderson Silva for no apparent reason.
