RIO DE JANEIRO - When undefeated featherweight contender Chad Mendes meets current champ Jose Aldo in
the main event of Saturday's UFC 142 event in Rio de Janeiro, it will
mark not only the first 145-pound headliner in UFC history, it will also
serve as the first-ever main event of the challenger's MMA career.
So is Mendes perhaps a little nervous ahead of his first time in the pay-per-view spotlight?
