UFC 189 'Embedded' video blog (Ep. 7): 'We'll end up fighting before we get to Ireland'

The circus continues!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) continues shelling out major dollars in promotion of the upcoming UFC 189: "Aldo vs. McGregor," championship pay-per-view (PPV) doubleheader that takes place on July 11, 2015, inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Luckily, Conor McGregor expects the fight to break all records, so UFC brass likely aren't biting their fingernails in anticipation.

With UFC President Dana White indicating that "Notorious" and "Junior" nearly came to blows yesterday after McGregor slapped the champ in the back, you just knew the latest "Embedded" episode would be good.

On episode seven of the UFC 189 "Embedded" pre-fight video blog, the whole gang arrives in Toronto for more media obligations, more of the same questions, and you guessed it... more staredowns!

Besides McGregor's money photo shoot for the ages, the real gem of this episode comes early on when Aldo admits that the two men will likely exchange blows before they even get to the major finale in Dublin, Ireland.

With three months to go before the two men actually throw down, is UFC hitting the promotional apex to soon?
