This Weekend’s “UFC 189” Finalized with 11 Fights

July 6, 2015 11:03 am by BJPENN.COM News

After way too many card changes, this Saturday’s “UFC 189” lineup is complete with eleven total fights taking place. Conor McGregor and Chad Mendes will be fighting in the main-event for the interim UFC Featherweight Championship after Jose Aldo was forced to pull out due to a rib injury.

Robbie Lawler will make his first defense of the UFC Welterweight Championship when he steps into the octagon to face Rory MacDonald. MacDonald has not lost a fight since their meeting in 2013 where Lawler bested the young Canadian.

Conor McGregor’s training partner Gunnar Nelson made his way onto the main card and will be fighting last-minute replacement Brandon Thatch. Both fighters are looking to get back to their winning ways.
