Video: Are you in or out on Alexa Grasso, Valentina Shevchenko coaching the next season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter?’

Alexa Grasso and Valentina Shevchenko will run it back for a trilogy bout, but first, they will challenge each other as coaches of opposing teams on the upcoming season of “The Ultimate Fighter.”

While it’s good that UFC women’s flyweight champ Grasso knows who her next challenger will be, there was some concern about them going through a season of “TUF” first, considering the last set of coaches in Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler have yet to meet inside the cage.

The circumstances around Grasso and Shevchenko are different though, as they have already shared the cage for a pair of title fights. The trilogy fight will likely take place soon after the new season of “TUF,” with speculation already swirling that it will headline the UFC’s event at the Sphere in Las Vegas.

How do we feel about this coaching matchup ahead of their trilogy bout?

That was a topic of discussion in this week’s “Spinning Back Clique” with Brian “Goze” Garcia, Nolan King, guest panelist “Big” John McCarthy, and host “Gorgeous” George Garcia.
