Michael Bisping spoke at length with The Telegraph this week ahead of his next assignment as a coach, opposite Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller on the next series of The Ultimate Fighter.
“I feel very privileged to get a second term as a TUF coach. It shows the UFC holds me in high regard. It’s great to be seen as a fighter and a personality within the sport. The only downside is that it puts me out of action until December, but it’s not like I’m going hungry,” said the British fighter, who leaves the UK for Las Vegas this weekend to start filming on Monday.
“All in all, it’s a fantastic situation I’m in."
“Yes, it could be two fights (until I get a title shot), but if I don’t get a look in straightaway, I would understand why."
“ I’ve been around Miller many times and he’s a pain in the butt. I’m sure if he pesters me enough, he’ll get a reaction at some point. I’m sure there will be a bit of back and forth, and we’ll have some fun with it. But at the same time, hopefully I can keep my cool and win a few fans around the world – even in America, ” joked Bisping.
“Could I go on a good guy PR campaign with this series ? Perhaps I can show my sensitive side (hahaha). In all seriousness, I’d like to be able to do a good job for the young fighters who are going to be in my group, and just be myself – the nice, charming individual I can be.”
