Michael Bisping vs. Dan Miller in the Works for UFC 114 in May

It looks like the UFC has already decided who Michael Bisping‘s next opponent will be in the wake of his close decision loss to Wanderlei Silva last month. According to MMA Junkie, the British middleweight is tentatively scheduled to take on Dan Miller at UFC 114 (May 29th, Las Vegas); the event will be headlined by the light-heavyweight bout between Quinton Jackson and Rashad Evans. Coming off of back-to-back unanimous decision losses against Chael Sonnen and Demian Maia — neither of which was particularly exciting — Miller could be facing a true must-win scenario here. Bisping has a bit more job security due to his popularity in the U.K., but a loss to Miller (which would be his third in four fights) could permanently derail him as a title contender. Any predictions on how this striker vs. grappler battle will play out?

ATTENTION ENGLAND! Please train and promote someone who can fight that isn't a douchebag.

The UFC obviously wants to keep Bisping around; every time he gets battered by a legitimate middleweight, his next fight is a tune-up fight. Bisping looks like he's always on the verge of breaking through to the UFC elite level, but he never quite gets there. Despite his frank arrogance, you gotta feel sort of sorry for him. He's proven himself to be an extremely popular sub-elite fighter. He'll always have a large audience watch him fail in his most important matches.

Someone I dont like vs. somebody I dont know who the fuck he is.



"Dan Miller"?
People are really named that? Sounds like the kind of name I'd make up to tell the police.

Whoa, "permanently derail him as a title contender"...... Bisping is a title contender? It's been mentioned a few times before, but he just doesn't have the power in any discipline to finish a fight, granted he always looks busy in his fight's but he just doesn't have that finishing power/ability to be a genuine title contender

I quit completely hating Bisping after Dan tought him a lesson, I still won't root for him though. That being said this is a shit matchup. I was thinking Bisping vs Marquart, if he's so fucking relevant why not? Miller is a tough dude and is hard to finish but is no contender.

who is marquart going to fight anyway?

Bisping should win this one, but I don't see it doing anything to help is image as an exciting fighter. Maybe -- maybe -- Miller's submissions will force Bisping to actually throw some real punches, but this has slog written all over it.

I don't hate Bisping, as in, I don't think he's an awful human being, but he's clearly afraid to pull the trigger, and so his fights will always suck, unless he's on the receiving end.

this fight reeks of the UFC giving bisping someone they think he can beat following a loss (Charles McCarthy after the Evans loss, Denis Kang after the Henderson loss) so that he can win and stay "relevant" in the division and make the UFC gobs of money in the UK market.....


but yeah eff this guy I hope Cole.....i mean Jim.....wait....no I mean Dan! pops his freaking head/arm/leg off

WAR BISPING!!!

No, not really....

What does the phrase "WAR _______!!!!" mean anyway?

Being a New Jersey native I would like to see Miller take this. Miller should put him on his ass and sub him so we don't have to hear about Bisping crying "Bollocks!" at the decision.

My prediction is that someone will get put to sleep!

Most likely me.

can you please stop calling the wanderlei fight close? if that's a close fight, then every every fight that ever went to a decision that wasn't 30-27 on all judges cards should be called close. it wasn't even a split decision. the judges barely gave one of the rounds to bisping, most likely because of takedowns that he did not capitalize on at all, and he nearly got finished at the end of every round. i don't even think he knocked wanderlei down, did he? what is your reasoning for calling that close?

As a brit, I can say that i will continue to watch the UFC no matter how many times Bisping loses. If anything, the more he gets his ass kicked the better. But I think he'll take this one sadly...

Miller by sub rd 2.

Whoa... shooting from the hip there guys. Sorry about that.

I would like to formally say that I don't hope Michael Bisping is the first person to die in the Octagon... I meant to say that I hope he is the first person to be tea-bagged in the Octagon.

Bisbing should win this. If not he's fucked. Unless he wants to try and go down another weight class LOL.
