Michael Bisping: Mayhem Miller's mouth is definitely bigger than his brainPosted on September 10, 2011, 03:52 PM by Joey Santosus
With the fourteenth season of The Ultimate Fighter rapidly approaching, the UFC held a TUF 14 media conference call today, just one week ahead of the show's premier on Spike TV. Slated to begin airing on September 21st, top Middleweight contenders Michael "The Count" Bisping and Jason "Mayhem" Miller will serve as opposing coaches, while 32 contestants, both Bantamweights and Featherweights, will compete for their shot at a six-figure UFC contract.
Below are highlights from today's Conference Call, which featured coaches Michael Bisping and Jason Miller (via MMAMania.com):
• Jason Miller hasn't [annoyed me as much as Jorge Rivera]. Rivera was different. It wasn't just him, it was his whole team and they talked about family and stuff I don't want to go into and drag up again and give him more press. Jason's not like that, he's just a bit idiotic. He would try to wind me up, you'll see. They were all very, very feeble attempts, you know. His mouth is definitely bigger than his brain. He tried a few things and they were pretty childish so they didn't wire me up to that extent.
• I always give people the benefit of the doubt. Me and Jason have some mutual friends and I thought he was an okay kinda guy. We were doing press things and shooting commercials and the more I was around him the more he got under my skin. He really started to piss me off really. You'll see why he's not on my Christmas card list.
• You'll see as the season plays out. Apart from the amazing fights, I've had a chance to watch the first two episodes. The thing I recognize is Dana White, a guy who's seen a ton of fights, he says these are the best fights ever to get into the house. Besides the excellent fights and the very talented group of guys getting back into the show, me and Mike put a damn good show on. I credit the UFC for making that decision to put us on the show together because we both have strong personalities and we were meant to clash.
• I had one priority going into this show. My first priority was to make sure I gave full attention to coaching these guys. That was my first priority and the second was to make good television. After the first week, I was a bit bored so I started cranking it up. We need to make something happen so the audience was engaged and these things happened.
