Chris Leban and Mark Munoz will christen the UFC’s new main event policy at UFC 138 when the middleweights battle in the company’s first non-title five-round affair. Today, the world’s premier mixed martial arts promotion confirmed Michael Bisping (Pictured) and Jason Miller will follow in their footsteps by potentially going 25-minutes when they headline “The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale.”
Bisping owns an impressive 21-3 record and will be riding a three-fight streak into their grudge match. Although only a couple episodes of TUF 14 have aired thus far, the two had plenty of run-ins during their time as opposing coaches on the show.
“Jason is one of those guys that you either love him or you hate him,” Bisping stated. “I definitely don’t like him. I think most people around him find him very, very annoying. I know people on The Ultimate Fighter did and I was no different. On December 3rd, I’m going to kick his ass.”
Miller makes his UFC return with a respectable 24-7 professional mark, but “Mayhem” hasn’t been seen since submitting Kazushi Sakuraba at “Dream.16” in September 2010. There is certainly no love lost on his end, either.
“I definitely got under his skin during the season,” Miller said. “We hate each other’s guts at this point and on December 3rd, we’re going to get in the cage across from each other and settle it. I’m excited for this fight.”
The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada will host their 185-pound shootout. Spike TV will broadcast the main card live, which will also feature the finals of this season’s featherweight and bantamweight tournaments.
