Following the news that Jose Aldo pulled out of UFC 189, a resolute Conor McGregor said it doesn't matter who he faces in the octagon in Las Vegas because he's going to win no matter what.

The Brazilian announced yesterday he will not be fit enough to fight by 11 July, menaing McGregor will be facing Chad Mendes. 

Episode 1 of UFC 189 has been released and it follows McGregor to New York where he was fitted for his new fight kit. It then features an interview with Dana White in which he and the Irishman reveal Aldo has pulled out of UFC 189. 

McGregor reacted to the news in true McGregor fashion and commented: "If a man is scared for his life, we cannot force him to step inside and fight me.

"Doctors have cleared him to fight -- it's a bruise -- but he still pulled out.

"Rightfully so, the belt should be taken from him and we will contest for the interim belt or, in my opinion, the real belt."

We then get a look at an outwardly confident Chad Mendes, who says he'll be there "whooping [McGregor's] ass". 

"I'm feeling good, I'm feeling like a world champion," Conor says during a intense session.
