It was revealed during the TUF 21 Finale that UFC interim featherweight champion Conor McGregor and Team Alpha Male leader Uriah Faber will coach against each other on Season 22 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF).
Welcome back to The Crossfire.
Unlike most TUFs, McGregor and Faber will not fight each other at the conclusion of the series.
The first special two-hour episode will air September 9th on FOX Sports One in the US and on TSN in Canada at 10PM ET.
16 lightweight fighters will compete for a UFC contract.
McGregor will lead 8 European fighters, while Faber will coach 8 Americans.
McGregor recently won the interim belt last weekend at UFC 189, defeating Faber’s teammate Chad Mendes by first round TKO.
