Full TUF 31 cast revealed, featuring Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler as coaches


The cast for season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter has been revealed — and it features some fresh faces, as well as a slew of familiar names.

The promotion showed the UFC 285 participants going through the reality program in the hopes of earning either a UFC contract or a return trip to the octagon. Conor McGregor, a former two-division champion, and Michael Chandler will be their coaches. They’ll fight one another sometime in 2023.

This season’s participants compete in the bantamweight and lightweight divisions. Former UFC fighters Timur Valiev, Hunter Azure, and Brad Katona are included in the 135-pound division, while names such as Jason Knight, Roosevelt Roberts, and Kurt Holobaugh are part of the 155-pound lineup.

The season premiere is scheduled for May 30 on ESPN+. You can see the complete cast here.
