No more Bisping for TUF4 Finale

Visa Issues Scrap Bisping from TUF4 Finale

Due to Visa issues, Michael Bisping’s first bout since winning ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ season three title will have to wait. The UK standout was scheduled to face Eric Schafer in a featured match on ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ season four card this Saturday night at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. No replacement bout will be added to the show, which features the middleweight and welterweight finals of TUF4, and which will air on Spike TV beginning at 9pm ET / PT.

What's this no replacement crap! Its the freaking main event! It wouldn't be the first time the UFC threw something together last minute! You can't give one of the TUF 4 guys that spot considering how they fought on the show! Most of those fights were very uninspired! Even the Edwin Dewee's fight! I'll admit I like that fight with Gideon Ray because he was bleeding like crazy but that was all I liked! This sucks!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

This sucks so much. I really wanted to see Bisping back and in dominating fashion against Eric Schafer. Hope he can get a visa and fight soon.

As much as I want to say this sucks...I kinda doesn't IMO.

I mean...ok he had visa issues coming to the U.S. -- he would have more than likely SMASHED his opponent anyway. Eric who?

So I look at it like this, we get to wait for a bit longer...and "The Count" will get to fight on PPV against someone tougher. It's a win-win situation in my eyes.

Thats a good way to see it.
I don't get it though. We can't stop illegal immigration, but we'll stop a guy from visiting to participate in a sporting event.
