Watch Countdown to UFC 189: Chad Mendes vs. Conor McGregor

Chad Mendes

The UFC had to do some last minute shuffling, but the promotion managed to put together a Countdown show for UFC 189, covering the Conor McGregor vs. Chad Mendes scrap.

As everyone and their dog knows, featherweight champ Jose Aldo had to pull out of his bout with McGregor last week, after suffering a rib injury. Thankfully, the UFC had put Mendes on standby, and now the explosive fighter will face McGregor for the interim belt.

Not only is it a promising bout because it features two of the best 145’ers on earth, but because the two already had a rivalry in the works, as the Countdown show documents.

You can watch the segment below.

UFC 189 will go down on July 11th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
