The newest season of Ultimate Fighter starts with Team Bisping facing off against Team Miller. The series premieres tonight on Spike. The fireworks in this season will be obvious with the two coaches clearly not fans of one another. there’s no particular beef with one another, they just don’t respect each other, which should make for some interesting confrontations in the gym.
Michael “The Count” Bisping isn’t liked by a lot of people; he has earned a fairly reputable non-fandom of haters. Not to be outdone, Jason “Mayhem” Miller isn’t exactly easy to warm up to either. If they do come to confrontation, it will actually be the first time it has happened with any of the coaches, who’ve all be mostly indifferent to one another or had a one-sided goading that never amounted to much.
Still, when the 32 fighters break-up into two teams, this combination could provide some serious sparks.
Bisping has been on Ultimate Fighter before, heading up Team UK in Season 9. he has also been in the ring, winning the light heavyweight division on Season 3 of The Ultimate Fighter, beating Matt Hamill at UFC 75, and starting his pro-fighting career with a 14-0 record.
Miller beat Kasushi Sakuraba at Dream 16, submitted Robbie Lawler for the Icon Sport Middleweight Championship in 2006, and hosted the reality series “Bully Beatdown” on MTV.
The Ultimate Fighter, Season 14 premieres September 21st at 9/8c on Spike. A special Sneak Peek is available now at ultimatefighter.com.
