[VIDEO] Oh, This? Just Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo Talking Smack on Fox Sports Live

A mere…four months out from their featherweight title tilt at UFC 189, Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor are already being given the insult-laden media tour treatment. They’ve already received their own Embedded series, lobbed steroid accusations at each other in various interviews, and most recently, engaged in a bilingual bro-down on Fox Sports Live. It’s kind of unprecedented, really.

You can check out the entire cringeworthy interview above, which features such highlights as McGregor claiming to be aroused by the “beautiful aroma” of fear that Aldo is secreting (gross), or Aldo comparing Mcgregor to Scooby Doo (lol!). Honestly, it’s pretty difficult to watch two guys throw shade at one another when a translator is involved, but McGregor is the kind of cat who could sell a ketchup popsicle to a woman in white gloves, ya dig?

Meanwhile…Demetrious Johnson sits at home playing Xbox and wondering when the damn camera crews are going to arrive already. :(

After the jump: The first three (or as McGregor would say, “tree”) episodes of the aforementioned Embedded series.

“I’m Not a Cocaine Addict”: Jon Jones Discusses Failed Drug Test on ‘FOX Sports Live’

For the first time since Jon Jones‘s failed drug test for a cocaine metabolite was made public earlier this month, the UFC light-heavyweight champion discussed the incident in detail last night, in a pre-taped interview with Charissa Thompson of FOX Sports Live. You can watch the entire segment above, which covers everything from Jones’s drug usage, to how he learned of the results, to his one-night stay in a rehab clinic. Some highlights…

On his December 4th drug test: “It was a nerve-racking day. I knew that I had done something wrong, and I knew that the test would show that…I knew it would be a positive test, I knew there was nothing I could do about it. I was stressed out about it, but I just thought I’d focus on what I could control, and that was just the fight.”

On poor decisions: “That’s the big question — ‘Why would you do that right before your fight?’ I definitely don’t have an excuse. I’m not here to make excuses for what happened. I did it, and basically, at a party. I think a coward would sit here and try to come up with this elaborate reason or try to blame something, and I’m not gonna do that. I’m not gonna blame my friends, I’m not gonna blame pressure or stress…but what I will say is, I messed up. It wasn’t a mistake, I can’t call it a mistake because I consciously did it.”

On his cocaine usage: “I had done it before, quite a few times in college I had experimented with it, but that’s really it. Mainly just college, it was something that I dipped and dabbed into a little bit, but it was never really an issue.”

Really? So you did cocaine in college and then did it this one time before a fight and got caught. No. Seriously? “Yeah, pretty much…I do not dab into cocaine, it’s not my thing at all. The night I did it, I was just…there’s no excuse, I really don’t know what came over me, what made me decide to make such a poor choice, but I did, and now I live with…I’m not a cocaine addict by any mean, or not even a frequent user. I just made a really dumb decision, just really got caught with my pants down in this whole situation, and you know, no excuse for it, I can just apologize and try to do things better.”
