When Michael Bisping meets Jason Miller later tonight inside the Octagon at the Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale he’ll do motivated by more than the thought of winning. Rather, the 32-year old hasn’t taken too kindly to some of Miller’s antics leading up to the bout and will be looking to take his aggravation out on “Mayhem” once the cage door closes.
Bisping spoke about Miller in a recent interview with the UFC promoting their match-up where he elaborated on his current mindset, saying, “With me, the worst thing you could possibly do is piss me off. The worst thing is piss me off because you’re in for an ass-kicking.”
From the sound of it the anger he feels towards Miller helped curb any overconfidence prohibiting his focus on the task at hand even though Bisping clearly sees the colorful Californian as an inferior opponent.
“I could’ve sat on my ass for the last six months eating pizza and still beat Jason Miller. The fact is I’ve just done a training camp like I’m fighting Anderson Silva, so it doesn’t bode well for Jason,” explained Bisping before adding that, when he wins, “I’m not going to be jumping for joy as if I’ve won a world title. He’s only Jason Miller. He’s the Bully Beatdown guy.”
Fans can catch the two TUF 14 coaches’ clash this evening on Spike TV starting at 8:00 PM EST with other fights on the card including the season’s bantamweight/featherweight tournament finals and Yves Edwards vs. Tony Ferguson.
