Jose Aldo implies Chad Mendes is on PEDs

Or did he infer that Chad Mendes was on PEDs? Or did he just outright say it in this interview with Combate? I think Jose Aldo did more to just imply Chad is on something, so it’s a little interesting that the champ has fired back in this increasingly-heated rivalry. Check it out below:

“Concerning my injuries, I have so many because I might not be taking the same “supplements” you take. I have injuries because I work out a lot to beat you, like I did last time, and I think you remember it and have nightmares about it to this day. I did all the necessary medical tests, but if you are now doctor, I can send the exams for you to evaluate. Maybe you can prescribe one of your supplements for me to get better faster?

“Regarding how long I’ll stay out, the doctors decide that. The one who gets beat up usually runs away from another beating, but you can’t run forever, because I am coming after you. When the cage door hasn’t closed yet, you can say whatever you want, because once it closes you will be unable to open you mouth, so keep talking while you have a mouth. Are you in charge now of when we are going to fight? I think Dana White doesn’t want to see someone make his decisions for him, right?

Snap.

“You seem to only want to fight in your home, you do not want to fight in Brazil at all. I’ve got injured before fighting in Brazil against Frankie (Edgar) and then went to Vegas to fight him. I fought there in your home (Sacramento) against your trainer (Urijah Faber). I fought (Mark) Hominick in his house in front of 55,000 people, I fought in Japan, in Europe. And you tell me who will be champion? A champion does not choose who he fights or where. Now I ask you who is the real P—Y?
