Crash Course at UFC 189

Crash Course to UFC 189: Chad Mendes vs. Conor McGregor
By Jeff Wagenhiem, si.com

It is what’s known as a defining moment.

When Conor McGregor steps into the octagon for the UFC 189 main event on Saturday night, he will carry with him a heavy load of sky’s-the-limit expectations as well as a good measure of show-me-don’t-tell-me doubts. It’s fair to say that most who are at the MGM Grand Garden Arena (10 p.m. ET, PPV) for the featherweight interim title fight will have come to Las Vegas mainly to watch the brash Irishman–to see if the big talker can walk the walk.

Will McGregor back up the bluster, or will Chad Mendes take him down and shut him up?
