The Ultimate Fighter 31

Conor McGregor’s next fight isn’t limited to his physical battle with Michael Chandler, as McGregor and Chandler took on coaching roles for The Ultimate Fighter Season 31 in 2023. This show highlights what happens when aspiring MMA fighters live and train together for their upcoming UFC fights.

In this past season, they did so by getting coaching insights from two of the greatest MMA/UFC fighters of all time. This was McGregor’s second stint as a TUF coach, as he led a squad in season 22 versus a team coached by Urijah Faber.

McGregor vs Chandler: Technical MMA Matchup

A big part of how the Conor McGregor next UFC fight date will play out in the ring will be which weight class this fight ends up in, as McGregor has indicated he wanted the battle to take place at 185 pounds. Chandler, in response to McGregor’s video post, said he was fine with fighting at 185 pounds.

The matchup, though, will take place in the welterweight division, up to 170 pounds, not as heavier middleweights, UFC boss Dana White said.

The heavier weight class might have favored McGregor, who would prefer that this match be a slower-paced brawl, but Chandler has shown that he can go toe-to-toe in brawls and has greatly improved his kicking of late. Chandler’s preference would be to go with a faster, wrestling-centric approach, as he was a NCAA Division I All-American wrestler at the University of Missouri and has posted 30 percent of his career wins via submission because of this skill set.

Early Conor McGregor Next Fight Prediction

Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler have both predicted that they will knock the other person out in Conor McGregor’s next fight. The betting public doesn’t see either as a clear favorite, but McGregor’s advantage in power, age and reach should give him enough of an edge.
