Conor McGregor releases first faceoff footage with UFC comeback opponent Michael Chandler from TUF 31 filming

Fans of The Ultimate Fighter may finally rest easy now that Conor McGregor has released some exciting photos of himself and Michael Chandler from the set of TUF.

The Ultimate Fighter’s 31st season is nearly finished filming in Las Vegas, Nevada, with the former champion of two different divisions serving as a coach for the television show. The Notorious will be coaching against Michael Chandler, who will be his opponent in the octagon in the latter part of this year.

What are the pictures that Conor McGregor has released?

In the newly published pictures, Conor and Chandler are seen coming face to face during the filming of The Ultimate Fighter. Fans of mixed martial arts are already quite thrilled to witness the two UFC fighters approaching face-to-face as though they are about to engage in a fight.

In spite of the fact that this is only a photoshoot, Dana White has already confirmed that McGregor will face Michael in the UFC not long after the conclusion of the 31st season of The Ultimate Fighter. Thus, the face-off will actually happen in the not-too-distant future.

The tension between the two fighters has been rising steadily throughout TUF’s filming. It was revealed last week that The Irishman jumped into the cage and attacked his rival coach Chandler. Not much can be inferred from the available images, but credible witnesses have corroborated that a fight broke out between the two combatants.

The new season of The Ultimate Fighter is scheduled to begin broadcasting on ESPN on May 30th. In addition to a great number of other well-known fighters from the UFC, the cast list also includes Jason Knight, Kurt Holobaugh, Brad Katona, and Cody Gibson.
