UFC 189 will have a new main event. Featherweight champion Jose Aldo has withdrawn from his scheduled title defense against Conor McGregor on July 11 due to a rib injury.

Former two-time title contender Chad Mendes will replace Jose Aldo and fight McGregor (17-2) for the interim featherweight title. Mendes had been on standby since news of Aldo's injury broke.

There have been conflicting reports about the severity of Aldo's injury. According to his coach, Andre Pederneiras, Brazilian physicians diagnosed a fractured rib, but the statement that UFC released last week said that Aldo suffered from a rib contusion and damaged cartilage.

Aldo (25-1) got injured while training last week in Rio de Janeiro and he attempted to recover in time to still compete at UFC 189.

The change in the main event was announced by McGregor (5-0 in the UFC with four knockouts) and UFC President Dana White on ESPN SportsCenter Tuesday evening.

The buildup for the Aldo vs. McGregor fight was unprecedented, with both fighters traveling around the world to build the heat between them.

 

McGregor vs. Mendes
It is not the fight everyone expected, but McGregor vs. Mendes can be a memorable battle. Mendes' (17-2) two pro losses have come against Aldo and he is coming off a TKO victory over Ricardo Lamas in April.

McGregor's usual confidence didn't change after learning about his new opponent, as he predicted a four-minute knockout over Mendes.

McGregor opened as a -125 favorite at bet365. Mendes is listed at +100 UFC odds since he accepted this fight on short notice but the former NCAA All-American wrestler at Cal Poly is unquestionably the best wrestler McGregor has ever faced.

Mendes is an elite wrestler with tremendous striking power and McGregor will have to deal with the threat of the takedown. Can McGregor stop Mendes' takedown? That could be the key to this fight.
