Jose Aldo's takedown defense is beyond good. He did a masterful job of defending Chad Mendes's attempts last night at UFC 142, and when the opening presented itself, Aldo landed a crushing knee to Mendes's face, which put the challenger down on the mat.  Aldo followed up with a couple of big punches that put Chad out.  Immediately afterwards, Aldo ran into the stands and was mobbed by jubilant Brazilian fans.  Security worked hard to get him back into the Octagon.

It was a brilliant performace by Jose Aldo, and the win moves him up the pound for pound best lists.  Looks like Aldo is going to be champ for a long time,
