The Ultimate Fighter Season 31: McGregor vs Chandler
The highly anticipated season of The Ultimate Fighter season 31 is almost here. On this season of The Ultimate Fighter we have the return of “The Notorious” Conor McGregor and “Iron” Michael Chandler as the coaches going head to head.
You already know that this will make for good TV, especially with Conor McGregor. Chandler may not be the most charismatic fighter but the animosity that McGregor brings to the table will bring out the character in Chandler.
On this season of The Ultimate Fighter, we have a mix of UFC veterans along with regional fighters rounding out the cast. The mix of the UFC veterans trying to get back onto the big stage and regional fighters being hungry to finally make it will create great fights throughout the season.
We have eight of the best lightweight fighters outside of the UFC either trying to get their second chance with the promotion or their first. Let’s check out who is getting their shot on The Ultimate Fighter:
The list of regional fighters includes Rico DiSciullo, Mando Gutierrez, Carlos Vera, and Trevor Wells, with Gutierrez being the one to watch out for. He fought on Dana White’s Contender Series but lost to Raul Rosas Jr.
There is also a mix of experienced and new fighters: Lee Hammond, Nate Jennerman, Aaron McKenzie, and Landon Quinones. McKenzie stands out in this group as the LFA Lightweight Champion.
The veterans trying to make their comeback to the octagon include Hunter Azure, Cody Gibson, Brad Katona, and Timur Valiev. Former The Ultimate Fighter winner Brad Katona and Timur Valiev were surprisingly cut but expect both of these fighters to make some noise on season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter.
