UFC 189 media scrum videos featuring Conor McGregor and Chad Mendes

Conor McGregor and Chad Mendes gathered for the mixed martial arts (MMA) media to hold interview scrums following their UFC 189 open workouts on Wednesday (pics), breaking down this weekend's pay-per-view (PPV) interim featherweight title fight, which takes place this Saturday night (July 11, 2015) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Conor McGregor on his daunting weight cut:

"I'm a professional in this business. I don't mess around here. I take this game pretty seriously. I'm on point. My weight is smooth as... Don't believe everything you hear."

Smooth as...?

Chad Mendes on his short-notice call up:

"I'm feeling damn good right now. I'm the type of guy, I over-train pretty damn quick. Usually within three-to-four weeks in training camp, I've probably peaked out."
