'I'm going to put McGregor on his back and punch a hole in his face' - Countdown to UFC 189

The promos keep coming.

CONOR MCGREGOR SAYS he’s training like a world champion, he’s always talked like one and, in the new ‘Countdown to UFC 189′ show, the organisation are certainly painting him like one.

Not that everyone is happy about that, mind.

“Conor thinks he’s God’s gift to earth,” says Chad Mendes about his opponent on Saturday night — clearly not enamoured with The Notorious’ declaration that he’s going to finish his career in the featherweight division.

You’d almost forget this UFC 189 main event was only for an interim title which, we suppose, is exactly what Dana White and the organisation are hoping for.
