Urijah Faber claims to have gone toe-to-toe with McGregor in the TUF gym

However, he does call the interim champion ‘a decent guy’.

IT’S PRETTY CLEAR that Urijah Faber and Conor McGregor don’t particularly like each other.

The pair have been trading trash talk since before Faber’s Team Alpha Male team-mate Chad Mendes was lined up to fight McGregor at UFC 189 after Jose Aldo pulled out with a rib injury.

Before the weigh-ins for that bout, video emerged of McGregor and Faber grappling backstage.

And all this was before the pair were announced as coaches of Team Europe and Team USA for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 22.

Now Faber claims they’ve been at it again with this altercation taking place in the TUF gym.

“It happened again, a couple of days ago,” Faber told MMA Underground.

“They didn’t have any cameras on us, but we were giving each other crap. We were testing each other and, next minute, we were manhandling each other. It always ends up with him getting pissed off.”

However, the American later admitted that McGregor was a “decent guy” whose mentality he liked.


Tony McGregor says seeing Conor hurt against Mendes was ‘a terrible shock’
