Tempers Flare At UFC 189 Press Conference

Conor McGregor, Chad Mendes trade barbs in intense UFC 189 press conference

LAS VEGAS -- It might not have been World Tour-level shenanigans, but the UFC 189 press conference did not disappoint with regards to trash talk.

On the same dais for the first time, Conor McGregor and Chad Mendes exchanged verbal barbs Thursday at the KA Theatre in the MGM Grand. The two men will meet for the interim featherweight title Saturday here in the UFC189 main event and did a nice job hyping a fight that was only booked two weeks ago.

Mendes, whose only career losses have come against champion Jose Aldo (the man he's replacing) attacked McGregor's lack of experience against wrestlers and unproven grappling.
