Mayhem vs Spitsbing will be five rounds

By the grace and glory of Allah, it has been determined that the Michael Bisping vs Jason Miller fight at the end of this season’s TUF will indeed be a five round fight. This seems like a no brainer and I’m sure many of you never even knew that was in question. Maybe if you read Fightlinker more closely you wouldn’t be such uneducated bastards, huh?

“We’ll see, I don’t know,” White answered when asked if Bisping vs. Miller would fall under the new five round rule. “I don’t think they’ll be the main event, you know what I mean? I don’t think they’ll be the main event.”

The implication there being that the TUF tournament fighters would get the five round designation instead. Which is stupid. While this year has more seasoned veterans than most, they’re still green compared to Bisping and Miller. Throwing them into a five round fight was a recipe for disaster, not to mention a near guarantee that the coach fight would go to an unsatisfying decision.

The whole point of five round main events was to give big fights more time to be big. And considering the entire season of TUF is built around two established, popular coaches fighting, it would have been stupid to do things any other way. Fortunately, Dana White made the right choice. AKA the choice I wanted him to make. Good job Dana on being a genius like me.

    I love Miller & hate Bisping, but I still can’t see Miller winning. I just don’t think he’s faced the level of competition that Bisping has over the last three years & the size difference should be significant.

    Still, a fight is a fight and Miller’s scrappy enough (and good enough on the ground) to pull out a win. Here’s hoping.

    I agree MMAdam 100% minus the love for Miller. He’s better than Pissbing but can get on my nerves.

    I think Bisping might be more well-rounded than Miller, but we’ve never really seen bisping in any ground wars with a grappler like Miller.  Should be a fun fight if they make it a five-rounder.

    As much as I like Miller, he’s another old school guy who hasn’t kept up w/the strength aspect of UFC level guys or the constantly improved striking, even among grapplers. I don’t see many paths to victory for him.

    i want the bully beatdown kid to win. he totally came out of nowhere with that show, before then he was just a nobody. Good thing Dana White watches MTV2 and saw that show and gave miller a shot on the TUF. Fuck pissbang

    Finally. Now all they have to change is that old ass gladiator theme at the start of every event. Or have they done that already? And if you like Bisping over Miller than you’re definitely from England or some shit.

    Thinking Bisping will win it?

    Get fucked with that shit eating. Miller by submission.

    Now go to your room and think about what you’ve done.
