UFC 189 'Embedded' video blog (Ep. 2): Conor McGregor 'going to f--king butcher' Chad Mendes

Yippe ki yay motherfucker.

The anticipation for the summer blockbuster event of the year, UFC 189, which is expected to do all kinds of big numbers, has not missed a beat since Featherweight champion Jose Aldo was pulled from his impending title clash with No. 1 contender Conor McGregor earlier this week with an ugly broken rib injury.

The reworked interim title fight goes down on July 11, 2015 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada (full fight card here).

Embedded is in full swing (view episode 1 here), capturing every move "Notorious" makes, as well as new opponent the two-time, 145-pound title challenger Chad Mendes. Mendes even runs into a fan wishing that the Team Alpha Male stud breaks McGregor's jaw.

"Money" can be seen (literally) enjoying the fruits of his labor with teammate Urijah Faber prior to his headliner with the fearsome Irishman. Then, the two fiery featherweights launch dirty and despicable verbal tirades at each other on the UFC 189 media call.

"We had to do an interview right before my Aldo fight and he's talking about putting balls on my head; just being very unprofessional. This is something that made it personal," said Mendes. Watch the initial interview prior to UFC 179 in October here.
