He won't let it happen again...
Chad Mendes spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Jose Aldo at UFC 176. Check out the highlights:
On Aldo grabbing the cage during their UFC 142 fight: "It sucks looking back on it. I've watched that fight multiple times, and it pisses me off every time. I mean, that definitely would have changed at least the first round...We're definitely going to be talking to the refs beforehand this time, and I'm really going to be working on getting takedowns out in the open."
On cage-grabbing in general: "A lot of those guys out there, you take them down against the cage, and they're grabbing it every time. It's definitely something we're going to be focusing on."
