Bisping and Mayhem are talkin' trash again before next week's final TUF premiere on Spike.
The last season of The Ultimate Fighter to air on Spike begins next Wednesday. At least it is likely to leave with a bang. What other way could a show starring Jason "Mayhem" Miller and Michael Bisping leave?
The two are among the most heavily quoted MMA fighters over the last half-decade, Miller for his biting one-liners and Bisping for his blunt honesty. Both reared their heads on Wednesday, when they shared a teleconference to publicize TUF's Sept. 21 premiere.
Between praise for the season's cast and discussion about their upcoming fight, Miller and Bisping couldn't resist engaging in some verbal sparring.
Their most memorable exchange surprisingly came after a rare compliment. Miller had just finished crediting the UFC for the decision to install them on as rival coaches, saying it was bound to make for a memorable season and lead to personality clashes.
As if on cue, Bisping seized the moment.
"You're trying to sweeten me up so I don't beat you too badly on Dec. 3," he said.
"Don't get me wrong, I think you're way worse an idiot than I am," Miller said. "And I'm going to smash your face and choke you."
"Nice to see you've been warming up on your sister," Bisping shot back. "I definitely will be practicing guillotine escapes."
Just moments before he got personal about the incident with Mayhem's sister, Bisping was saying Jorge "crossed the line talking about family stuff".
I think he's missing a few brain cells...
