On Saturday, July 11, the UFC will touch down in Las Vegas to bring fight fans the highly anticipated UFC 189 live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

I the night’s headlining act Irish superstar Conor McGregor will do battle against former two-two title contender Chad Mendes with the winner being crowned the interim UFC featherweight champion. McGregor was originally scheduled face reining featherweight kingpin Jose Aldo before a broke ribbed forced the champion out of the contest, leading to the UFC naming Mendes his replacement.

In the co-main event reigning UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler will be looking to make his first title defense against Canadian standout Rory MacDonald in a rematch of their 2013 contest. In this initial meeting, Lawler earned a tight split decision win.

All this plus a featherweight matchup between Dennis Bermudez and Jeremy Stephens, a welterweight battle between Gunnar Nelson and Brandon Thatch as well a bantamweight bout between Thomas Almeida and Brad Pickett.
