We are just two days removed from another huge weekend of mixed martial arts action, as the UFC heads to Vegas for UFC 189 and The Ultimate Fighter 21 Finals. UFC 189 hits us on Saturday July 11th with two title fights on offer, the headliner of Chad Mendes vs. Conor McGregor is truly stealing the show in the hype stages. The interim featherweight title is up for grabs for the winner, and with the injured champion watching from the sidelines, the main event could prove telling in the future of the division.
The Irish ‘Notorious’ one featured in a one hour open workout yesterday, warming up the fans in attendance with his SBG (Straight Blast Gym) Ireland team mates. Although looking quite drawn out from his allegedly huge weight cut, although Chael Sonnen may have misheard him, McGregor puts in some good work on the pads and on the grappling displays.
