Conor McGregor will again be centre stage in July when he takes on world champion Jose Aldo in Las Vegas and this trailer should get the pulses racing.

It was confirmed at the weekend that the Irishman will take on the Brazilian in the main event of UFC 189 on July 11 in Las Vegas.

"We have the fight date for McGregor-Aldo, the biggest fight of the year," McGregor told MMA Fighting.

"Saturday, July 11th, International Fight Week, I'm gonna rip that Brazilian's head off."

McGregor is set for the fight after his second-round TKO win over Dennis Siver earlier this month.

But, despite McGregor's tough-talking, he doesn't have an easy task ahead.

Aldo has won 18 straight fights, including nine title defences, making him the greatest featherweight champion the sport has ever known.

Meanwhile, McGregor has won 13 straight fights altogether, including five in the UFC.
