UFC 179 'Embedded' video blog, Ep. 1: Jose Aldo compares himself to Muhammad Ali, compares Conor McGregor to shit

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back with its "Embedded" pre-fight video blog series for UFC 179, featuring behind-the-scenes footage ahead this Saturday night's (Oct. 25, 2014) "Aldo vs. Mendes 2" pay-per-view (PPV) event at Maracanãzinho Gymnasium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We kick things off with a closer look at the final training and media days of featherweight champion Jose Aldo, who insists that he is Muhammad Ali (the greatest) if Chad Mendes is, in fact, Mike Tyson. Speaking of "Money," we also get a closer look at his last preparations before heading to Brazil. Not surprisingly, nobody has anything nice to say about top title contender Conor McGregor. All that and much more in the video above. And be sure to CLICK HERE for live UFC 179 results and play-by-play. See you this weekend!
