UFC 189 is just a couple of days away, and if you’re not excited about Saturday night, well, that’s a shame. Sure, lots of folks are still sore about the fact the card will no longer feature Jose Aldo, but you can do a lot worse than Chad Mendes-Conor McGregor as a headliner. Not to mention the fact the July 11th event will also include welterweight champ Robbie Lawler taking on Rory MacDonald, which is rematch of their 2013 encounter, when “Ruthless” won by split decision.
In addition, Matt Brown versus Tim Means should also be on your must see list, and Dennis Bermudez vs. Jeremy Stephens is a pivotal fight at 145. Gunnar Nelson-Brandon Thatch is also a compelling match-up, and the card will also see TUF 1 vet Mike Swick return to acton, as he’s taking on Alex Garcia.
All this aside, the promotion has released the sixth episode of Embedded for UFC 189, which features Chad Mendes showing off his various hunting trophies and extolling the benefits of eating organic, free range meat. It also shows McGregor doing some swimming, showcasing some pretty sweet soccer skills and explaining why “capitalize” is his go to word these days.
MacDonald and Lawler also make appearances and rightfully so. The cameras follow MacDonald as he does some training and document Lawler’s arrival in Las Vegas.

UFC 189 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
