If you thought Chad Mendes and Conor McGregor might sit through today’s UFC 189 presser without engaging in some trash talk, well, clearly you haven’t been paying attention.
Yes, in advance of UFC 189 on Saturday night, and the interim featherweight title fight featuring those two men, the UFC held a press conference today in Las Vegas. McGregor once again took aim at Mendes’ height, and called the contender a “novice”. Mendes in turn, promised to “f—in embarrass” McGregor on July 11th.
Of course, welterweight champ Robbie Lawler was in attendance, as was Rory MacDonald, who will challenge “Ruthless” on Saturday. The event was also held in conjunction with the TUF 21 Finale on Sunday night, which will feature Jake Ellenberger taking on Stephen Thompson in the headliner.
