The hatred between Ranger Up and Bisping started when the current Ultimate Fighter coach was accused of spitting on Rivera’s corner after their fight at UFC 127 earlier this year. Kennedy, a Strikeforce competitor, has displayed his dislike of “The Count” for quite some time, making several pitches to face off with him on TUF.
Instead, the coaching job went to Jason “Mayhem” Miller, who will get the next shot at punching Bisping in the face when the two meet this Saturday night in the main event of The Ultimate Fighter Finale 14.
Bisping won his third straight fight by knocking out Rivera, adding to wins over Yoshihiro Akiyama and Dan Miller. He is 7-2 since 2008, with his lone losses coming to Dan Henderson and Wanderlei Silva. Miller is on a two-fight win streak, having defeated Kazushi Sakuraba and Tim Stout following a loss to Jake Shields.
