UFC NEWS – Maynard Says Mendes Isn't Ready To Take On Aldo

“The way I see it, Chad Mendes is a great athlete, a very mature kid, but honestly I don’t believe he’s ready to fight Jose Aldo. I think it’s too soon, he needed to fight few more times, but well… I’m not the one to decide that, it’s just my opinion on the subject. Jose Aldo is a great champion, you can tell he feels comfortable at the cage and it seems he does what he wants to do in there. He’s an impressive guy a while now I’ll do whatever it is I can do to help him out. It’s a pleasure training with a guy that talented. I can only say “thank you, Jose Aldo.””

Talking to Brazilian media outlet,, former UFC lightweight title challenger, Gray Maynard talks about the upcoming title matchup between Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes set for UFC 142 in Brazil.

Coming off a training camp with Aldo to help him prepare for the wrestling of Mendes, Maynard is now convinced that Aldo will retain his title come fight night.

    i have recently re watched aldo’s entire career the man is GOAT
    this faber wanna be has no chance aldo is going to pick him apart…. prediction 2nd round tko and thats being generous to chad, everything grey said was true chad needs to fight some lower calibur fighters before he thinks he can step in the ring with the likes of Jose Aldo.
