Conor McGregor was left devastated following yet another defeat, marking his sixth consecutive loss on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF). In the latest episode, McGregor's SBG teammate, Lee Hammond, suffered a shocking defeat by way of a submission, despite initially dominating his fight against Kurt Holobaugh.

As Hammond was choked out, McGregor dropped to his knees in despair. This defeat further extends McGregor's winless streak on the UFC reality TV show, while his rival Michael Chandler is just two victories away from a flawless record.

McGregor had pinned his hopes on Hammond becoming the first of his prospects to secure a win, and initially, things seemed to be going well for the Irishman. Hammond began the fight strongly, asserting control over Holobaugh on the ground and delivering precise ground and pound shots.

In the dying moments of the first round, McGregor fervently urged Hammond to finish the fight as he landed powerful elbows. However, Holobaugh managed to survive the onslaught. Despite sustaining an injury scare before the second round, Hammond continued to dictate the pace of the fight.

The SBG fighter mixed submission attempts with ground strikes, but with less than two minutes remaining, he made a critical mistake during a scramble, surrendering his neck and succumbing to a guillotine choke from Holobaugh.

McGregor dropped to his knees and covered his face in disappointment at the outcome. After the fight, McGregor voiced his belief that Hammond was the superior fighter and commended his growth and development.

However, Hammond was visibly upset with himself, dismissing McGregor's praise. Reflecting on the loss, Hammond admitted his rookie mistake and credited Holobaugh, a seasoned veteran, for capitalizing on the opportunity.

As tensions flared, McGregor and Chandler had to be separated post-fight when McGregor pushed his rival, prompting UFC president Dana White to intervene.

In the upcoming episode, McGregor will rely on knockout specialist Landon Quinones to secure a victory as he squares off against UFC veteran Jason Knight, in a battle between rookies and veterans on the show.
