Video: Conor McGregor drops ESPN reporter during Chael Sonnen interview for UFC 189

BREAKING NEWS: Jose Aldo has officially been ruled out, Conor McGregor vs. Chad Mendes is the new UFC 189 main event -- CLICK HERE.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight No. 1 contender Conor McGregor was showing former middleweight contender Chael Sonnen what he plans to do once the cage door slams shut for his "Notorious" main event at UFC 189, which takes place on July 11, 2015 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

We hope.

Then the ESPN reporter on duty started getting a bit liberal with his hands, which prompted the 145-pound Irishman to lock up and drop the mismatched media member right on his keister (Aaron Tru would be proud). And not a single wrinkle in that powder-puff blue suit!

Expect McGregor and Co. to make the media rounds this week as we inch closer to what could be the biggest pay-per-view (PPV) fight of the year, assuming reigning featherweight champion Jose Aldo can recover from his recent rib injury. If not, no worries, the show must go on.

You can bet "Money" on it.
