TUF Season 31: Conor McGregor’s Team Makes a Comeback

Read about the thrilling comeback of Conor McGregor’s team in Season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter. Find out how Team McGregor fought their way to victory against Team Chandler’s UFC veterans.

Season 31 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) returned with an action-packed episode, featuring head coaches Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler leading their respective squads of lightweight and bantamweight contestants. The episode showcased intense fights and surprising comebacks, as Team McGregor fought to turn the tide in their favor.

The episode kicked off with Landon Quinones Stewart comparing notes with former opponent Jason Knight after Knight’s victory by submission in the previous week’s fight. Dana White made an appearance to remind viewers that Coach Conor McGregor was on the verge of making history as the first coach to lose all eight quarterfinal fights.

In an effort to change the course of the competition, it was up to Rico DiSciullo to upset Hunter Azure and secure a win for Team McGregor. DiSciullo, a seasoned bantamweight fighter, showcased his skills and determination as he faced off against Azure, a promising opponent.

The fight started with DiSciullo landing a powerful leg kick, followed by a series of exchanges between the two fighters. Azure managed to take DiSciullo to the ground and unleashed a flurry of punches from side control. However, DiSciullo showed resilience and managed to escape back to his feet. Azure continued to press the attack, but DiSciullo defended well and landed some strikes of his own.

In the second round, DiSciullo came out strong, landing a devastating overhand right that sent Azure reeling. DiSciullo capitalized on the opportunity and finished the fight with a flying double axe handle. The knockout victory secured a much-needed win for Team McGregor.

With this win, Team McGregor’s lineup for the semifinals was solidified. In the bantamweight division, the team consisted of Mando Gutierrez, Trevor Wells, Carlos Vera, and Rico DiSciullo. In the lightweight division, Lee Hammond, Nate Jennerman, Aaron McKenzie, and Landon Quinones Stewart represented Team McGregor.

Despite the setback, Team Chandler’s UFC veterans dominated the semifinal rounds, winning seven out of eight fights. The anticipation for the upcoming lightweight semifinals between Austin Hubbard and Roosevelt Roberts grew as the fight announcements were held off until the next episode.

Stay tuned for the exciting matchups and intense battles as TUF Season 31 continues to unfold!
