[VIDEO] Jose Aldo pushes Chad Mendes at media day


All the trash talk and accusations from afar between UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and challenger Chad Mendes came to head when they came face-to-face Tuesday morning in Brazil to promote their UFC 179 title fight. The two met for a media day at Maracana Stadium and when it was time for them to pose for the cameras while squared up, Aldo got right into Mendes' face and then shoved him away.

People swooped in to get between the two fighters before any more extra-curricular activity could erupt. Great to see the UFC now doing even less to prevent brawls when bringing heated rivals together to promote fights, than they were before.

Does seeing Aldo shove Mendes get you more amped up for their rematch? Let us know in the comments section.
