Aldo-Mendes 2 Set for STAPLES Center

The top two featherweights in the world meet again on August 2 in Los Angeles...
The rematch between UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and number one contender Chad Mendes will headline UFC 176 at Los Angeles' STAPLES Center on August 2.

Tickets for the event go on sale on June 13.

In their first meeting in January of 2012, Aldo stopped the then-unbeaten Mendes with one second remaining in the first round. Since then, Mendes has won five straight, most recently decisioning Nik Lentz in December of 2013. Aldo, the only 145-pound champion in UFC history, has added three more successful title defenses since the Mendes bout, defeating Frankie Edgar, Chan Sung Jung, and Ricardo Lamas.
