The latest UFC embedded video is out as Conor McGregor's interim title fight with Chad Mendes draws tantalisingly close.

The Crumlin brawler criticised Mendes for sending tweets to Jose Aldo  after the Brazilian was forced to pull out of the fight with the Dubliner because of a rib injury.

"That was a p***y move. Little coward. Trying to be friendly. 'Can I please have your fans?'... it's something a man does when he's close to death," McGregor said.

Mendes responded: "It's respect for a fellow athlete."

The Notorious is taking care of all his pre-fight needs including new tailored suits, open workouts and an upsurge in trash talk.

Chad Mendes arrived at his open workout to a chorus of: 'You'll never beat the Irish'.

He told those MMA fans who were not there for him that they could 'suck it'.

"I can hit like Mike Tyson and I'm looking to put someone to sleep," Mendes predicted.
