Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Michael Bisping, Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller Tapped as TUF 14 Coaches

Dana White announced this afternoon that British heel Michael Bisping and American goofball Jason “Mayhem” Miller will be the coaches on the next season of The Ultimate Fighter, which will start filming soon with a cast of featherweight and bantamweight contestants.

The selection of Miller comes as a surprise, as he was already slated to fight Aaron Simpson in July, a match that now appears to be off. On the other hand, his outsized personality coupled with Bisping’s thin-skinned volatility is sure to produce the kind of excitement and interaction between the coaches that was completely lacking on TUF 13. So, good move, UFC.

Bisping was formerly a coach on TUF 9, leading British fighters Ross Pearson and James Wilks to success in the lightweight and welterweight brackets, but was later the victim of a devastating knockout at the hands of rival coach Dan Henderson. Miller has hosted three seasons of MTV’s Bully Beatdown, leading pro fighters like Jake Shields, Andrei Arlovski, and Eddie Alvarez to satisfying thrashings of untrained douchebags.

The Ultimate Fighter just became ten time more entertaining and the new season hasn't started yet. How does that happen? Oh right, Mayhem's on it!!!

I assure you I am a member of the Nielsen ratings system since November of last year I wanna say.


Sometime next year maybe it Depends I want to make a go at something else before I do that. I return to college in the Fall for Fitness with a focus in Anaerobic Cardio so good times.

@Goog When you get your son that tattoo take a picture of it and send it to me and I promise I will send my hot asian supermodel wife over to blow you.

For all of you guys talking about Hardy, he isnt even in the same division as these two.

LOLing @ noizy and Trouser Snake

I would probly watch that. Has to be better than this "reality" format crap that dominates TV these days.
Trouser Snake- May 27, 2011 at 3:51 pm
@noizy.....and the could call it "The Ultimate Boner" and DW's tag line cane be "so you wanna have a fucking boner?"
noizy- May 27, 2011 at 3:39 pm
@omunto : Yea I know. Seriously. Forget about the fights, the fighters, and the coaches. They should just do a 13x1h shows with slow motion shots of the octagon girls walking around the cage.
TIME_TRAVELER_FROM_THE_FUTURE- May 27, 2011 at 3:38 pm
This will be the first TUF i wont watch.
They both annoy me to no end, and not in an interesting kind of way. Just an irritating one, like nails on a chalkboard.
noizy- May 27, 2011 at 3:34 pm
Should be interesting to see Bisping cry and squeal that Miller is making fun of him.

"...but was later the victim of a devastating knockout at the hands of rival coach Dan Henderson."

Oops. Just came in my jeans a little. My dad's generation talks about where they were when Kennedy was shot and man landing on the moon. My son will hear about Bisping eating a wrecking ball and Chael Sonnen beating Silva's dumb ass for 23 minutes as the most important moments ever caught on film. And when he's 17, he'll get a tattoo of Hendo parallel to the floor dropping that unnecessary fist from 6ft up... whether he wants it or not.

As for TUF? Who gives a fuck.

Even if this season's fights are another yawn at least the coaches will keep up entertained
NomadRip- May 27, 2011 at 2:52 pm
Gawd, to be a shitty door manufacturer in Vegas. Think of the income... I liked Bisping when he was a contestant on the show, but not much since. Mayhem will be worse than Sonnen would have been. Mayhem, bring Rivera in as an assistant coach for fun :-D
omunto- May 27, 2011 at 2:37 pm
I wonder how many episodes in they'll get before everyone complains the show doesn't revolve around the fighters enough. In my expierence here are the reactions of TUF viewers:

*Quiet coaches/focus on fighters = "this season sucks, it's so boring"

*Obnoxious coaches = "They dont focus on the contestants enough"

*Obnoxious fighters = "I hate all the fake drama, just show me fights!"

TUF fans are generally unhappy people.
Tim Sylvia 1 P4P EVA- May 27, 2011 at 2:29 pm
They couldn't have picked 2 better coaches, both witty, and equally susceptible to taunting this will make for firework, and ratings. I for one, and likely the only one like both of these fighters, but have to give the edge to the brit in the cage. The only question left will be who wins the battle of the one liners, and the editing room.
RSparrow- May 27, 2011 at 2:29 pm
I have a feeling they are gonna like each other, and fuck around friendly... not the same as Sonnen
Clyde- May 27, 2011 at 2:18 pm
@ RNS, probably because Hardy is on a 3 fight losing streak.

Could be an interesting fight, but there are so many of these "tapped as coaches" rumours/articles for each season of TUF so I'll keep that in mind before worrying too much about the result.

Hey Karma, Don't mean to rain on your parade, but unless you got a Nielson box, you ain't contributing shit.
frndlylion- May 27, 2011 at 2:14 pm
I actually suspected Mayhem as a backup for Sonnen when it was announced the UFC had picked up Miller's contract. Its not a big leap of imagination really.

@munche Bisping won't be able to hang with Miller's jawing and my money says episode one that door is toast!

Karma, buddy, when is that first pro fight? I know you want it. I want to see it. :)
intercept440- May 27, 2011 at 2:09 pm
now this is going to be the best TUF in the last 5 years.... were talking chael sonnen caliber trash talk this is going to be epic
RearNakedSpoon- May 27, 2011 at 2:08 pm
Why does Bisping get another shot? why not have like Hardy vs... Alves?
KarmaAteMyCat- May 27, 2011 at 2:07 pm
Dammit Taco that was funny shit. People wanted Drama and now their going to get flat the fuck out going to get it. I think it's going to be awesome and out of control for the most part to say the least Miller is very GOOD in front of the camera and will know just how to get under Bispings skin. Don't count the COUNT out though Mayhem is beatable and honestly it's not like either of them going to do anyting against Anderson Silva accept eat a Seagal special to the chin. I personally have enjoyed Season 13 of Tuf and after watching this many you would think I'd get board right? Well I just kind of enjoy watching other fighters chase their dreams so as long as my one viewers ship contributes to positive ratings I'll keep watching.
munche- May 27, 2011 at 2:04 pm
I will watch just to see Mayhem epic troll Bisping. We should start a pool at how many episodes in before Bisping smashes a door. 2? 3?
JCVD as Timecop- May 27, 2011 at 2:04 pm
Hahahaha holy shit this might actually make me interested enough to download an episode or two.
