The Ultimate Fighter Season 31 is already in the news. Recently, Dana White noted that an altercation occurred between Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler on the sets and now, new information regarding the same has come out.

For a while, it appeared as though Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler got along well, and their common goal to triumph came across as healthy rivalry. There is more to the story, though, if UFC president Dana White's remarks are to be believed.

On the forthcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter, former UFC two-division champion Conor McGregor and No. 5 rated lightweight contender Michael Chandler will square off as coaches (TUF Season 31). Following the May 30 series debut of ESPN, the competing coaches are anticipated to face off. The fight's official start and end times have not yet been determined.

Tensions between the two erupted during the TUF filming, according to Dana White, who revealed this during the UFC 285 post-fight press conference. The two had to be separated, according to White, since they grew to hate one another during the filming.

New information suggests that someone was slapped during the encounter, and eager fight fans are awaiting additional developments in the case. Allegedly, when a fighter was knocked out and commotion broke out, Conor McGregor jumped into the cage.

"Here's what I learned about the McGregor/Chandler "incident" that Dana was alluding to on Sat. Apparently, someone was KO'd and McGregor jumped in the cage, shoved Chandler, someone got slapped and the teams rushed the cage. NSAC broke it up. Video interviews coming soon #TUF31,” reported Amy Kaplan on Twitter.
