Earlier today the UFC confirmed Ultimate Fighter Season 14 coaches Michael Bisping and Jason Miller will settle their differences on December 3 in Las Vegas as part of the TUF 14 Finale. Adding more spice to an already heated affair between the two middleweights, the bout will also be contested in a five-round format rather than three as most non-title tilts are.

The event will also play host to the season’s bantamweight and featherweight finals with one man from each division walking away with a six-figure contract and distinction of being an Ultimate Fighter champion.

All Future UFC Main Events to Be Five Rounds

“Bisping and ”˜Mayhem’ spent the last few months as TUF coaches and they really got on each other’s nerves,” said UFC President Dana White in a press release. “On December 3, the talking finally ends and these two will go at it inside the Octagon. There’s a lot at stake in this fight. Not only do they get to settle their feud, but they get to prove that they belong in the mix to fight Anderson Silva.”

The last time the 21-3 Bisping fought at an Ultimate Fighter Finale he was contending for the Season 3 prize in his official Octagon debut. Since then “The Count” has racked up ten wins in the eight-sided structure including victories over Chris Leben, Dan Miller, and Yoshihiro Akiyama.

December 3 will mark return to the organization after a single fight in 2005 and subsequently successful run in a variety of promotions including DREAM, ICON Sport, and Strikeforce. He holds an overall record of 24-7 with twenty finishes, the bulk of which have come via submission.
