The mind games continue. During the video shoot of the commercial for their UFC 189 featherweight championship fight, Conor McGregor managed to get hold of Jose Aldo's UFC title belt. Needless to say that the Irishman used this to create a provoking, but entertaining situation with the champion.

Separated by some kind of glass door, McGregor asked Aldo if the belt looks good on him, insulted him and dared him to "come get it". Aldo stayed rather calm. You can watch the video above.

UFC champion Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor are currently on a big, unprecedented media tour to promote their fight. The tour takes them to ten cities in five different countries, and the mood is getting more and more tense. The tour started in Aldo's backyard in Rio de Janeiro, where McGregor told him that he owns the city. Next stop was Las Vegas where the fight will take place, and he stole his belt. Today the tour is going to hit Boston. Let's see what happens next.
