It looks like the relationship between Dana White and Conor McGregor is on a downward trend and it appears that White blames McGregor for the coaching scenario surrounding the Ultimate Fighter 29 falling apart.
White says that McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov were set to be the coaches for the reality show, until McGregor leaked the DM’s between himself and White.
“He was going to do it until Conor did all of this (expletive),” White said to Barstool Sports (via Nolan King of MMA Junkie). “I almost had it. That’s what I was saying: I felt like I was in a good place and I was going to get that done. We were going to do ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ on ESPN and (expletive) do the rematch. But you know, Conor blew that. … Yeah, Khabib said (expletive) him.”
There is no word at this time as to who will now be the coaches on the next season of TUF.
Season 29 of the Ultimate Fighter is expected to start filming next month, once White returns from Fight Island.
