The Notorious Face His Biggest Challenge Yet

Conor McGregor vs Chad Mendes: UFC 189 to see 'The Notorious' face his biggest challenge yet in fight of the year
By Dan Hardy, independent.com
It’s hard to think of a time when a fighter has had such a meteoric rise through the UFC ranks. Seemingly in complete control of every facet of the game, from the psychological warfare, to the skills, and quickly becoming familiar with the rockstar lifestyle, ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor has ignited the featherweight division, shutting down every opponent so far. He’s been calling for the title since the beginning, and after five impressive wins he got what he asked for and the long reigning champion, Jose Aldo, stepped up to defend his belt.
