In this seventh episode of UFC 189 World Championship Tour Embedded, Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor hit New York City. It’s stop five of their ten-city media tour around the world.
The episode starts with Aldo visiting the gym of his friend, former Strikeforce competitor “Shaolin” Vitor Ribeiro. When asked about the tension between him and McGregor and all the pranks the Irishman pulled, Aldo predicts: “We’ll end up fighting before we get to Ireland.”
Meanwhile, Conor is doing a cover photo shoot with Sports Illustrated, involving a lot of cash money — an imitation of a cover Muhammad Ali once did for the magazine. Like it or not, it looks like the Ali-McGregor comparisons won’t stop anytime soon.
At the end, Aldo takes a page out of McGregor’s book, when he looks forward to the stop in Dublin and promises to “take over” the city and “own it”. But before it gets to that, their next stop is Toronto.
Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor will square off July 11 in Las Vegas, NV, in the main event of UFC 189.
