Bisping interview: "Mayhem Miller's mouth is bigger than his brain"

Michael Bisping coached against Jason "Mayhem" Miller on the season of The Ultimate Fighter that was filmed this summer and will air on Spike TV this fall, and for fans of the show who enjoy seeing conflict between the coaches, Bisping has some good news: There was friction during filming between the two of them.

Bisping said on The MMA Hour that he and Miller had several encounters during the taping of the show, and he came away from them with less respect for Miller than he had before.

"Miller's mouth is bigger than his brain," Bisping said. "I definitely get the upper hand throughout the entire season. I'm not talking about the fights, I'm just talking about the one-on-one interaction with Miller."

Bisping said he had hoped to coach against Chael Sonnen because he thought beating Sonnen at the end of the Ultimate Fighter season would earn him a shot at middleweight champion Anderson Silva. Instead, Sonnen failed to get licensed to fight after legal problems related to his use of testosterone and his conviction on money laundering charges, and so Miller was next up.

"I was a little disappointed it wasn't Chael Sonnen," Bisping said. "I think a lot of fans wanted to see that. But he had his personal problems and it wasn't meant to be. Miller, I wasn't as excited."

But once he got to know Miller, Bisping said, he became excited about the possibility of fighting him.

"At the start of the season I thought he was an OK guy," Bisping said of Miller. "By the end of the season I wanted to kill him. Fortunately, December 3 I'll have my opportunity."

Bisping said his biggest disappointment is that if he does beat Miller, he doesn't think that will be enough to earn him a title shot, whereas beating Sonnen probably would have. And Bisping said he doesn't think it's fair that Sonnen is considered close to title contention, even though Sonnen lost to Silva and then was suspended by the California State Athletic Commission.

"I think it's complete bulls**t," Bisping said. "Chael Sonnen, who just fought the champ, cheated and took steroids."

Although Bisping is preparing mostly for Miller right now, he makes clear that his ultimate goal is to earn a shot at Silva.

"I think I am next in line," Bisping said. "Ideal scenario would be beat Miller, get a title shot, win the world title."

Maybe he's just careful not to spoil anything but what I read from this is two of Mayhem's guys are in the finals.

Bisping will never get a shot at the Middleweight title, nor could he ever beat a top 5 middleweight. Sonnen, Okami, Stann, and Belfort would run through him. Silva would probably kill him.

That being said I think Bisping beats Mayhem.
