McGregor Faber TUF 22 Coaches
The Ultimate Fighter®: Team McGregor vs. Team Faber will feature 16 competitors in the lightweight division and, in addition to a UFC contract; national pride will be on the line as McGregor leads eight European hopefuls against the Faber-led American squad. The sixth season to air on FOX Sports 1 (BT Sports in the UK) will kick-off on Wednesday, September 9th with a two-hour season premiere airing at 10 p.m. ET. The season will continue with 11 one-hour shows Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET. 
 
Since bursting onto the scene in 2013, McGregor (18-2) has taken the MMA world by storm. Declaring in July 2014 “we’re not here to take part; we’re here to take over” when referring to the Irish presence in MMA, the Irish sensation has done exactly that. Originally scheduled to fight Jose Aldo at UFC® 189, McGregor defeated Faber’s friend and training partner Chad Mendes to claim the interim UFC featherweight title Saturday night by second-round TKO. Now he awaits his next fight, a highly anticipated title unification bout with Jose Aldo in the coming months.
 
The former WEC featherweight champion, Faber (32-8) has been vocal in his disdain for McGregor. Long considered a pioneer for the lighter weight classes, Faber has assembled one of the top gyms in the sport, Team Alpha Male, featuring UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw, No. 2 flyweight Joseph Benavidez and Mendes. Now, he’ll bring his high-powered team to Las Vegas in hopes of leading the Americans past the Europeans.
“Conor McGregor  will not be fighting Urijah Faber. They will be just coaching and mentoring these young fighters. Obviously the best decision was to get Conor McGregor for the Europeans, and Faber’s such a great coach, has an amazing team, and has a lot to offer the U.S team.” Stated Dana White on The Ultimate Fighter 21 Finale last night.
New season of The Ultimate Fighter 22 debuts Wednesday, September 9th on FOX Sports 1 or BT Sports in the UK.
