Chad Mendes went the distance with Jose Aldo Saturday night at UFC 179, coming up short in his quest to become the featherweight champion.
In his career, “Money” has lost just twice now – both times to Aldo, in Brazil, with the title on the line.
The first time, Mendes was hit with a knee and finished with just a second left in the first round. The second time around, he pushed “Scarface” to the edge, leaving him with an injured eye and bloody face.
