Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler set for TUF Coaching Roles

UFC President Dana White has announced that Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler will be the next set of coaches for The Ultimate Fighter.

SevereMMA reported McGregor’s role in the reality TV series last week. White confirmed the Dubliners counterpart will be Chandler today in a social media announcement on Saturday.

Chandler has been calling his shot to fight McGregor from the moment he set foot inside the Octagon and made an emotional promo after his sensational knockout of Tony Ferguson at UFC 274. He will now get the chance to coach and fight against the biggest superstar in Mixed Martial Arts in the summer of 2023.

This will be the second stint as a TUF coach for McGregor having coached against Urijah Faber on Season 22 in 2015.

The show will air from 30th May 2023 to 15th August 2023 on ESPN+. At the end of the season we will see McGregor and Chandler lock horns on a PPV card. Dana White was unable to confirm a date or a venue for the highly anticipated return of Conor McGregor.
