Coach “Mayhem” Meets Coach Bisping on TUF 14

Michael Bisping and Jason "Mayhem" Miller will meet as coaches on season 14 of The Ultimate Fighter
Two of mixed martial arts’ most compelling figures are unquestionably Michael “The Count” Bisping and Jason “Mayhem” Miller, with both garnering more media attention than practically anyone in the middleweight division. The two 185-pound contenders have proven they can fight at the elite level of the sport as well.

But can they coach?

Bisping answered that question as he led two of his fighters to victory on season nine of The Ultimate Fighter. Now it’s Miller’s turn to prove himself against the brash Brit when they collide as coaches on season 14 of The Ultimate Fighter, which begins filming next month in Las Vegas.

Manchester’s Bisping, winner of season three of TUF, is currently riding a three fight winning streak that includes victories over Dan Miller, Yoshihiro Akiyama, and Jorge Rivera.

California’s Miller is back in the UFC after a six year absence where he fought the likes of Jake Shields, Robbie Lawler, Tim Kennedy, and “Jacare” Souza, while also gaining worldwide fame for his stint as host of MTV’s “Bully Beatdown.” In his most recent bout, in September of 2010, he submitted Japanese legend Kazushi Sakuraba, and now he has his sights on Bisping both in the gym and in the Octagon.

Miller’s originally scheduled July bout against Aaron Simpson at UFC 132 has been canceled. A new opponent for Simpson is currently being sought.
