UFC 189 'Embedded' world tour video blog (Ep. 1): Behind the scenes of wild 'Aldo vs. McGregor' showdown in Rio

"Look into my eyes, little man."

UFC 189 is still several months away, but that hasn't stopped the "Aldo vs. McGregor" party from getting started.

That's courtesy of the promotion's UFC 189 "World Tour," which takes Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor to eight cities in just 10 days to promote their upcoming featherweight title fight, which goes down on pay-per-view (PPV) on July 11, 2015 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Watch the UFC 189 kickoff press conference here.

Their first stop was in Aldo's hometown -- Rio de Janeiro, Brazil -- and shit got real between the two 145-pound rivals (click here for the digital salute). But while most fans saw what happened when "Notorious" crashed the UFC Fight Night 62 festivities, there was plenty more that went down in the streets of Brazil (like this).

Check that out -- and so much more -- in episode one of UFC 189 "Embedded" in the player above.
