AAAAAAARGHHH: Jose Aldo Out, Mendes vs. McGregor Now Headlines UFC 189


(Official prediction based on this video: McGregor via triangle choke, round 1.)

Well, this has been a real roller coaster of a week, eh Nation? First Aldo was out, then he wasn’t, then Chad Mendes was being flown into Vegas/paid his show money just in case Aldo did decide to pull out, and now, this.

Jose Aldo is out of UFC 189. For realsies this time. Conor McGregor will now face Chad Mendes for the interim featherweight title at UFC 189 on 11 days notice. The news was delivered by Dana White on Sportscenter last night, the video of which you can check out after the jump.

 

And just like that, the most lavishly-promoted fight in UFC history goes up in smoke. Aldo misses out on the biggest payday of his career. McGregor gets an arguably tougher stylistic matchup and PPV sales likely tank. Karma at work, maybe?
