On Sept. 9, the latest season of the long-running mixed martial arts reality show, The Ultimate Fighter, will premiere on FOX Sports 1 with interim featherweight champion Conor McGregor going head-to-head against Urijah Faber.
McGregor will be leading a team of European lightweights against Faber and eight Americans, but the two fighters will not face off at the end of the season.
Instead, McGregor will be fighting Jose Aldo at UFC 194 in December to unify the 145-pound titles.
On Tuesday, the UFC released a new video promo for the upcoming season that doesn’t offer much of a glimpse at what to expect but gives us just enough to get the blood pumping.
Check out the video below:
