    Elias Cepeda at Cagewriter17 hrs ago

    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 theirUFC 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.

  • Dana White and Nate Diaz meet, discuss business

    Elias Cepeda at Cagewriter1 day ago

    Dana White and estranged lightweight hold-out Nate Diazhave gotten together and begun to hash things out, recently. According to the UFC president, he and Diaz are on good terms, personally, but are still far apart in terms of what they each think the fighter deserves to be paid.

    "I took everybody out for the TUF 20 finale. It was a very, very, very rough night. A lot of damage was done that night. But Nate and I got together that night and talked, and we're going to get together when I get back into the country," White said.

    "Nate and I got to spend some quality time together. You know, we were out having fun, we talked business for a little while. We got together in a room, and where he is and where we are, we're not even close...He's just got something in his head and we've got something else in our head."

    Do you think White and Diaz are likely to come to terms and have the former title challenger fight again in the UFC? Let us know in the comments section.
