I’m just speculating here, but I think it’s entirely possible that the producers of The Ultimate Fighter have a side deal going on with UFC Interim Featherweight champ Conor McGregor where they pay him extra for every insult spoken and every scuffle engaged in on this season.
Case in point: the constant barrage of trash talk he sends opposing coach Urijah Faber’s way. The vast majority of it has to do with Team Alpha Male star (and bantamweight champ) TJ Dillashaw leaving the team for the warm embrace of coach Duane “Bang” Ludwig, and the Irish seems to be on an endless loop of “warning” Faber that Dillashaw is a snake in the grass.
It’s whatever, but this week it led to some sort of bench-clearing push-session. The video of which is below!
