The Ultimate Fighter Season 31: Preview
In the entire 18-year history of this show, no season of The Ultimate Fighter has generated as much hype and intrigue as Team McGregor vs Team Chandler.
In one corner, former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor “Notorious” McGregor, one of the most combative characters in modern sports, a man who would lose his head if he caught his own reflection looking at him the wrong way. On the other hand, three-time Bellator lightweight champion Michael “Iron” Chandler, whose more thoughtful approach is guaranteed to get under the Irishman’s skin.
Indeed, while the trailer shows McGregor exploding with rage at his opponent and at one point shoving him in the face, Chandler has said that The Ultimate Fighter actually humanized McGregor in his eyes. Whether he did this with tongue firmly in cheek remains to be seen.
If you’re not familiar with the format: McGregor, assisted by John Kavanagh and Owen Roddy, and Chandler, assisted by Ryan Bader, Robert Drysdale, Jason Strout, and Greg Jones will form their own group of up-and-coming lightweight and bantamweight fighters, before facing each other in the octagon later this year. Knowing what McGregor is like, Dana White may want to stay alert to a possible coup.
This is a must see if you like martial arts or sports documentaries. Read on as we explain how to watch Season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter.
