Conor McGregor vs. Chad Mendes doesn’t have the same pizzazz as Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor, but the show must go on after Aldo suffered a BROKEN, not bruised, rib. With showtime just nine days away, the UFC has launched the first of many Embedded episodes tailing McGregor and Mendes as they prepare for the biggest fight of their careers.
In the spirit of the UFC’s new partnership with Reebok, the athletic brand is sponsoring this series of Embedded episodes. The segment kicks off with Tuesday’s Reebok Fight Kit fashion show in New York.
The most interesting parts of the debut episode include UFC president Dana White and McGregor announcing on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” that Aldo has pulled out of the fight and will be replaced by Mendes, Urijah Faber and Mendes mocking McGregor’s fight stance and McGregor living in the lap of luxury in the “Mac Mansion.”
UFC 189 goes down July 11 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
