The new season of The Ultimate Fighter is currently running on the air, with a new episode set to debut on Wednesday night.
The first episode was a smash success, with rating going through the roof. A question a lot of fans had, leading up to the premiere, was just how the dynamic between coaches Urijah Faber and Conor McGregor play out. We had that strange altercation backstage at UFC 189, which took place right before they were announced as coaches. Then since then we’ve had interviews and what not, that added little more fuel to the fire. But ultimately, when the show premiered, we saw a light hearted and more respectful banter between the two. Sure, they’re still taking jabs at each other, but Faber and Conor have said several times recently that they got along fine.
Faber spoke at a media day recently and mentioned that McGregor is actually a pretty cool guy, that is, when he’s not putting on a show.

“I speak my mind, I love to fight, he speaks his mind, he loves to fight, and we don’t take crap. So that’s where things get heated up. But as a person, he’s a decent dude when he’s being real.”
