Chad Mendes and Conor McGregor will fight at UFC 189 in about two weeks. So there can’t be that much bad blood between the two of them right? Wrong.

It appears the war of the words started back in 2014. Mendes talked about the incident on yesterdays UFC 189 media conference call.

“The short s—, I don’t really give a s— about that. I’ve been short my whole life. For me, it was right before the Aldo fight, and he was talking about putting balls on my head and being very unprofessional. That was something that made it personal. For me, you don’t f—ing do that. This is the fight game and it’s something where somebody can get seriously injured, and that’s what I’m looking to do when I get in there against Conor McGregor.”

Ouch!
