Former UFC Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez showed a lot of character on the latest episode of The Ultimate Fighter.
Alvarez and fellow lightweight contender Justin Gaethje are the coaches of the latest season of TUF. This season features women competing at 125 pounds.
On the latest episode, one of Alvarez’s fighters, Ariel Beck, was having a panic attack prior to her fight. Alvarez calmed Beck down by talking about one of the worst moments of his career.
Last November, at UFC 205, Alvarez lost his UFC title after being knocked out by current UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor.
Alvarez told Beck the story of how he felt following his loss and managed to calm her down.
In the video below, you can watch Alvarez talk about how it was like to lose his UFC title in order to make one of his fighters feel better.
