Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) kicked off its UFC 189 "World Tour" earlier today (Fri., March 20, 2015) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to start the hype train for its upcoming "Aldo vs. McGregor" mixed martial arts (MMA) pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for July 11, 2015, inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

UFC 189 features a championship doubleheader topped by the must-see featherweight showdown pitting reigning 145-pound champion Jose Aldo against division No. 1 contender Conor McGregor. As expected, both "Junior" and "Notorious" came face-to-face (see below) after the press conference wrapped.
