UFC 176: Aldo vs. Mendes II was a planned mixed martial arts event that was scheduled to be held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on August 2, 2014, at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.[1]

Background[edit]

The event was expected to be headlined by a UFC Featherweight Championship rematch between the former champion José Aldo and challenger Chad Mendes.[1] Their first fight at UFC 142 ended in a first round KO victory in favor of Aldo.[2] However, on July 2, Aldo pulled out of the fight due to an injury suffered in training.[3]

Subsequent to Aldo's injury, the event was cancelled on July 8, when the UFC announced they were unable to replace the original main event fight and with less than a month before the event, the decision was made to postpone the event – though the promotion said the numbering scheme for already scheduled pay-per-views after it will remain in consecutive order. The fights booked for this event were shifted to other upcoming cards.[4] Aldo and Mendes eventually fought at UFC 179.

This was the second time, following UFC 151 in August 2012, that the promotion was forced to cancel an event because of a lack of a high profile fight to fill a main event spot.[5]
