Conor McGregor (17-2) and Chad Mendes (17-2) face off Saturday night July 11 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV at UFC 189 for the Interim Featherweight Title.
Conor McGregor is 5-0 in the UFC but has never faced a top caliber opponent like Chad Mendes. Mendes is a world class wrestler who punches like Mike Tyson while McGregor’s two losses have come against grapplers Joseph Duffy (13-1) and Artemij Sitenkov (15-13) who both finished McGregor in under 40 seconds.
Mendes has only lost to one man, p4p great and UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo. Chad has tremendous movement, excellent wrestling and powerful striking.
McGregor is a very skilled MMA fighter best known for his witty trash talk. He is also one of the most confident athletes I have ever seen.
It should be a great fight. Who do you think will win? Vote in our poll below.
