Alex Volkanovski & Brian Ortega To Coach The Ultimate Fighter

UFC fans will have to wait a while longer to see Alex Volkanovski vs. Brian Ortega following the announcement that they will serve as head coaches for The Ultimate Fighter 29.

UFC President Dana White confirmed to ESPN+'s Brett Okamoto that Volkanovski and Ortega will be the coaches for TUF's revival on ESPN. The reality series will start production later this month and their UFC featherweight title fight will be rescheduled at the end of the season.
