Two of the very best featherweights in the UFC company were named coaches of the new season of “The Ultimate Fighter”.
The champion Alexander Volkanovski and the #2 ranked guy Brian Ortega will be the ones coaching their teams. The pair was supposed to fight at UFC 260, but the bout got canceled due to COVID-19.
According to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto, the filming of the new season will start later in April and the rescheduled fight between the coaches will take place at the end of the season.
Welterweights Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal were previously rumored to be in the running for the coaches’ roles. However, Masvidal has now been booked to fight Kamaru Usman at UFC 261.
