'The Ultimate Fighter 31' rosters revealed, includes eight former UFC fighters


“The Ultimate Fighter” is back for a 31st season, which will be coached by lightweight stars Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler.

Set to debut May 30 on ESPN and run until Aug. 15, the series will include men’s bantamweights and lightweights. Filming began in February in Las Vegas.

McGregor (22-6 MMA, 10-4 UFC) and Chandler (23-8 MMA, 2-3 UFC) will square off after the conclusion of the series at a date and location yet-to-be-determined.
