Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes have quite the beef cooking as they head into their rematch this Saturday at UFC 179. Not surprisingly, the first episode of the card’s “Embedded” series features an example of the growing rivalry.
The segment shows Aldo doing some training in Brazil, as well as the featherweight champ speaking with the media. When asked about Mendes, Aldor refers to the challenger as a “piece of s–t”, before throwing the same insult Conor McGregor’s way.
You can check out the episode, which also follows Mendes around for a bit, below.
UFC 179 will go down in Rio de Janeiro on October 25th, and will also see Glover Teixeira fight fellow, light-heavyweight contender Phil Davis.
