“UFC 189” was originally supposed to host the biggest fight of the year between featherweight champion Jose Aldo and challenger Conor McGregor. When Aldo was forced out of the bout, UFC President Dana White changed the main event to an interim title fight between McGregor and Team Alpha Male’s Chad Mendes.
McGregor disposed of Mendes in two rounds after overcoming adversity several times. It was a performance worthy of a championship and now McGregor sits at the top of the division along side Jose Aldo.
Andre Pederneiras, Aldo’s manager, watched the bout and cannot wait for his client to get his hands on McGregor.
Translation: Congrats to the interim champion! Awesome fight! But now you get ready because you will face the real champion and you have no idea what awaits you…
