The Ultimate Fighter: What has been said?

McGregor has been accused of getting a few fighters thrown off this season of The Ultimate Fighter.

However, he has denied those claims in usual McGregor style.

In response to the initial rumours, he said: “I only know one guy on this show and he put himself forward for it.

“And he is now, after today, set to fight the No. 1 seed! I didn’t ask nor request nothing! And I certainly didn’t have people removed. I’m just tryna [trying to] get back in the mix myself so f*** off.”

But Mitch Ramirez believes that McGregor got he and some other competitors kicked off the show.

Speaking after filming, he said: “One of the producers came in and he looked upset. I believed him. His body language, what he was telling me sounded like the truth.

“What he told me is that ‘Conor landed today, and he brought two of his guys with him. He’s demanding they’re on the show. He’s got the prospects. Unfortunately, you have the least amount of fights on your record so you’re being replaced.’

“To me, that was such a blow. Such a nut shot, honestly. I remember sitting there being stunned and being, like, ‘Is there anything we can do? What the f***?’ And they’re like, ‘We’re sorry, dude, it is what it is. It’s Conor.’

“I get it. I understand who Conor McGregor is. I understand the way business works. I’m smart enough to understand that it wasn’t personal, but it is personal ‘cause it’s my life. And it’s everything I’ve put myself into for my whole life, honestly.”
