- Michael Bisping recently spoke about the importance of the Ultimate Fighter and more. Here are the highlights…
His Thoughts on The Ultimate Fighter: "For me, ‘The Ultimate Fighter' has been massive. I think it is a fantastic vehicle to find the new talent of tomorrow. It give the fighters a fan base immediately after being on the show," says Bisping, who's now in his ninth year in the UFC. "It allows the public to see what we're going through as fighters – the training involved, the physiological side of things. It's a great tool."
Would He Coach Again?: "I went back and coached it twice, and I would like to coach it again," Bisping says. "The Ultimate Fighter has found lots of great talent. A lot of the big-name fighters in the UFC now came through ‘TUF.'"
On The Importance of The Ultimate Fighter: "I think it's going to have a long future," Bisping says. "There might be the odd season where the talent isn't too great, but every season can't be the best season. Every year there is going to be that new talent, and it's just going to be better and better. There will always be a place for ‘The Ultimate Fighter.'"
On The Success He Gained From The Ultimate Fighter: "I'm certainly one of the most successful guys to come from the show," Bisping says. "There's Forrest Griffin, Diego Sanchez, Rashad Evans and the list goes on. I'm proud to be one of the original winners and one of the most successful."
