Thought the Michael Bisping vs. Jason Miller fight at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 14 Finale last night (Sat., Dec. 3, 2011) in Las Vegas, Nevada, was incredibly one-sided?
UFC President Dana White agrees with you. In fact, he's calling it one of the most lopsided fights he's ever seen. That's saying something.
It was so bad, in fact, that White is suddenly noncommittal on the Octagon future of "Mayhem," who was on the business end of a British beating at the Palms Casino Resort.
"It's one of the most lopsided fights I've ever seen. I'm disagreeing with people. I didn't give 'Mayhem' Miller the first round. He had a quarter of a mount and didn't do a thing and actually, Bisping was landing punches. I think Bisping landed more shots, did more damage. I go for damage and I think Bisping did more damage in the first round than Mayhem did. I don't know (if we'll see Mayhem back in the UFC). We'll see. He didn't have a good performance against Georges St. Pierre and he definitely didn't have a good performance against Michael Bisping."
Indeed, Miller was sluggish and admitted in the post-fight interview with Joe Rogan that he got tired and his gas tank ran dry far quicker than he wanted it to. He also apologized for his poor performance, which came after weeks of build up via TUF 14 on Spike TV.
But are his pleas enough to save his job? Could "Mayhem" be one and done in the UFC six years after the first time he fought inside the Octagon? Stay tuned.
