McGregors Coach Says They Won’t Know Whos Fighting McGregor For Sure Until The Weigh Ins

While as of right now Jose Aldo is still fighting in UFC 189,Chad Mendes has been contacted and is ready to go if Aldo is unable to. McGregor’s Coach said the following in a post to his blog:regor

“The Nevada State Athletic Commission could stop this fight against Aldo on weigh-in day — the day before the fight. That’s when the pre-fight medicals are done. Aldo might still want it but the doctor can say no if he doesn’t believe he’s fit to compete. Then it’s basically out of the hands of Aldo, ourselves and the UFC. Enter Chad Mendes.

“Mendes has been asked to make weight and he’ll be there, so it could be him stepping on the scales instead of Aldo for all we know. That kind of thing happens often at small regional shows, but this is for a UFC belt. That’s no big deal for us, though. It’s kind of exciting, to be honest. Who’s going to be on the scales when we turn up to weigh in? We won’t know until the day itself.”
