Bisping in as TUF 9 coach, Henderson and Franklin possible

Additionally, UFC 93 headliners Rich Franklin and Dan Henderson are being considered for the second coaching slot.

The news comes from Fighters Only Magazine, which cited UFC President Dana White.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today spoke to J.T. Stewart, Franklin's business manager, who said he wasn't aware of any definite plans but, "like everything else, it's something we'd consider."

"The Ultimate Fighter: U.S. vs. U.K.," which is tentatively scheduled to commence taping in January 2009 (with a debut date in April 2009), will feature teams representing the two countries.

Bisping, a Brit who fights Chris Leben in Saturday's UFC 89 main event, will head the U.K. squad. Bisping actually found his way to the UFC via the reality series. The 29-year-old was the light-heavyweight winner of the series' third season.

Franklin, who coached the second season of the Spike TV reality series, recently moved from middleweight to light heavyweight after losing his title and a subsequent rematch to Anderson Silva. He meets Henderson, a fellow fighter who's bounced between the two weight classes, at a Jan. 17 event in Dublin, Ireland.

The winner of that headline fight could determine who gets the coaching slot on "TUF" and would presumedly fight Bisping at the conclusion of the reality series.

"The Ultimate Fighter" reality series debuted in January 2005. In addition to launching the careers of more than 100 UFC fighters, "TUF" has featured rival coaches while to some of the UFC's biggest fights, including Chuck Liddell vs. Randy Couture II (season-one coaches), Tito Ortiz vs. Ken Shamrock II (season three), and Forrest Griffin vs. Quinton Jackson (season seven).

I had a feeling the Henderson/Franklin fight could determine the other coaching spot. Also assuming the two coaches fight I take either Henderson or Franklin over Bisping.

id rather see henderson as coach because franklin has already been, and the ufc need to build up hendo more with general fans because most dont know about his pride career! Also it would be at middleweight and if franklin and bisping were coaches and had to fight, i think franklin would win and eliminate a possible title fight for bisping! only makes sense to put hendo in as coach!

Yes, I am pretty sure that is what it is.

Bisping will be leading the UK team.

Henderson or Franklin would be badass on tuf. Also a big plus would be seeing Michael "the ****" bisping KOed, and one of these men would do it
