Chad Mendes vs. Conor McGregor full fight video preview: UFC 189

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight contender Conor McGregor (17-2) has been running his mouth ever since his Octagon debut back in 2013 and to date, he's been able to back up every single word.

Now it's time to see if he can complete his mission of "taking over" by capturing the interim featherweight strap in the UFC 189 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, which takes place later tonight (Sat., July 11, 2015) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Standing in his way is former two-time title contender Chad Mendes (17-2), who outside of injured division kingpin Jose Aldo, has made a mockery of the 145-pound division. It will be interesting to see if his wrestling -- historically "Money" -- can nullify his opponent's "Notorious" striking.
