He bodily lifted Akira off, but then instead of holding him in a bear hug, which could have caused Akira to fight back to get away, he quickly eased his grip & once Akira relaxed, he let him go completely. Then after seperating Parsons & Bisping, he stood there as Bisping flustered & fumed. He then quickly was able to laugh it off, finish the selection & move along. Even as Bisping tried to pick a fight with him ("It's our training time, get the f*** out", chasing him down the gym, yelling & screaming at the top of his lungs), Jason just simply walked away with his team.

The fight looked exactly like the previous four, except this time blue was on top instead of orange. The one difference between the way the two coaches cornered the losing fighter is that Bisping would yell "GET THE F*** UP!!!", whereas Mayhem would actually offer technical advice "We need to grapple here. Use that knee to push away & stand up." While the goal was the same, Michael did nothing to help his fighter get there. As someone who has competed multiple times, having a coach tell you "Get your guard back" is really frustrating when you're being smothered in side control. Having your coach then break it down to, "Turn into him, get your shoulders & hips off the mat. Block the cross face. Drive your knee in. Now hip away & make space." makes a world of difference.

Bisping's team definitely did great with this prank.

Think he got in parsons face because when bisping separates the fighters he takes millers fighter away and gives him sound advice "dont get yourself kicked off the show think about what the beep you are doing" (as it was millers fighter that started the brawl. Parsons then walks up to bisping and rather than thank him and take over the first thing he says is don't put your beeping hands on him. Miller then walks over and makes the situation much worse by shoving bisping. The brawl was totally Millers guys fault for kicking off during the stare down and miller made it much worse before he tried to then come off as the better guy.

Totally agree with you re the advice I have been on the bottom and had get up screamed at me, its about as useful as screaming heal when you cut yourself. But must admit all I heard Miller say was push off get of the cage get up. Either way fight wise best season in a long time
