McGregor will be in the octagon with Chad Mendes Saturday night at UFC 189 because he made himself vital to the world's dominant mixed martial arts promotion with his mouth, even more than his fists.Listen to McGregor for a few minutes, and you'll probably arrive at one of two attitudes: You'll have little doubt McGregor will steamroll any opponent on his path to riches and glory, or you'll be dying for Mendes – anybody, really – to shut his mouth.McGregor says he wasn't surprised after his numerous public confrontations with the Brazilian champion.Even on short notice, McGregor eagerly agreed to a replacement fight against Mendes (17-2), whose only career losses both came against Aldo. Mendes is a dominant wrestler, and the change in opponents presents an entirely different challenge for McGregor, but he didn't slow down his training or his mouth.
