UFC 189 World Championship Tour Embedded, Ep 2 - 'Whoever said it's tough at the top was talking absolute s**t'

Watch the second episode of UFC 189 World Championship Tour Embedded.

One of the biggest fights of the year is set to take place on July 11, when brash Irishman Conor McGregor challenges UFC champion Jose Aldo for his featherweight title. The popular video-blog series Embedded follows both fighters throughout their worldwide media tour, one that had them visiting 10 cities in five different countries.

This second episode shows Aldo and McGregor arriving in Las Vegas, where they will face each other in four months at UFC 189. While Aldo is killing time by playing snooker and ping pong, McGregor enjoys the conveniences of being a VIP guest at a five star hotel. His way of looking at things: "Whoever said it's tough at the top was talking absolute s**t, because it's not!"

Meanwhile, Aldo explains why he manages to keep calm in all his encounters and face-offs with his provocative challenger. He also makes a promise in the process: "I respect all athletes. I'll show respect, no matter who the person is. But when we're in the Octagon, respect is over. There I win"
