Former Ultimate Fighter winner Ryan Bader will return to The Ultimate Fighter this season.

Bader will serve as an assistant coach under Michael Chandler against a team of fighters led by Conor McGregor.

Along with Bader, Chandler’s team will include Robert Drysdale, Jason Strout and Greg Jones.

Back in 2008, Bader claimed the light heavyweight title on The Ultimate Fighter. He went on to have a standout career in UFC before signing with Bellator and winning both the heavyweight and light heavyweight championships.

The next season of The Ultimate Fighter begins May 30 and airs on ESPN, running through August.
