Jose Aldo officially ruled out, Conor McGregor vs Chad Mendes UFC 189 main event set



Ultimate Fighting Championship Featherweight Champion, Jose Aldo, will not defend his 145-pound title against Conor McGregor at UFC 189, which takes place next weekend (Sat., July 11, 2015) at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

ESPN broke thenews earlier:

UFC.com issued the following statement:

“UFC 189 has a new main event, as featherweight champion Jose Aldo has withdrawn from his July 11 title defense against Conor McGregor due to an injured rib. Chad Mendes, who had been on standby since news of Aldo’s injury broke, will now face McGregor for the interim 145-pound crown at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.”

McGregor has in the past started a feud with “Money” Mendes, so this will be an interesting matchup to say the least!
