UFC 189 promises to be the best card of 2015, even with the loss of Jose Aldo from the main event showdown vs. Conor McGregor. Chad Mendes is taking on "The Notorious" for the interim featherweight title while Aldo heals up from his rib injury, but there is a real title fight in the co-main. Welterweight champion Robbie Lawler defends his title against Rory MacDonald in a rematch of their November 2013 thriller won by Lawler.
