Conor McGregor reportedly shoved Micheal Chandler after jumping into the cage during the filming of the latest Ultimate Fighter season.
The two fighters are set to clash inside the octagon later this year after the latest season of The Ultimate Fighter wraps up in the summer.
This is McGregor’s second time as a coach on the show, he previously went head-to-head with Urijah Faber back in 2015 and ended up fighting his teammate, Chad Mendes.
Similar to that last season, there has already been a few confrontational moments with the Irishman reportedly pushing Chandler after jumping inside the octagon.
“Some things started escalating that you will see on the show and they do not like each other now,” Dana White said.
“I don’t look at stuff that’s good for the show or things like that. Whatever happens, happens. The stuff that just happened shouldn’t happen.
“I’m getting old boys, I’m getting old. I would have been in there sooner back in the old days, but yeah, not good.
“A lot of s**t went down on Friday.”
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
