In classic “The Ultimate Fighter” tradition, the UFC awarded both coaches on the ninth season of their hit reality show two pimped-out Range Rovers. Dan Henderson and Michael Bisping will be cruising around in style as they each earned the $100,000 whip.

The organization just released a video on UFC.com where UFC president Dana White and UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta handed the UFC 100 opponents their new high-end luxury SUVs.

“I knew he was going to get us a car, but I didn’t know what it was going to be,” Henderson stated in the video. “It’s awesome. Nice job.”

The ride is beyond fully loaded as Land Rover hooked them up with their specialty Windsor Collection edition, which comes with custom STRUT body kits.

“It’s an absolutely amazing car,” said Bisping. “It’s not just a Ranger Rover. It’s like the top of the range with every extra little [option] on it you can imagine.”

The two TUF 9 coaches will be in attendance at The Palms Hotel & Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada this evening to root their proteges on as they battle for a future inside the Octagon.

The main bouts for the Spike TV event kick off at 9PM ET/PT, however if you are unable to watch, or if you don’t have an east coast feed and would like to have the results LIVE, tune in to 5thRound.com’s LIVE Round-by-Round audio coverage of the night’s action. 

Hendo and Bisping are slated to scrap on July 11th at the UFC’s highly anticipated UFC 100 show inside the Mandalay Bay Event Center.
