UFC Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale Results: Michael Bisping Stops Jason Miller In Third

In the main event of The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale, Jason Miller returned to the Octagon for the first time since UFC 52 in 2005 to face Michael Bisping.

"Mayhem" came out all fire and brimstone, hurling big overhand rights and leaping into range with left kicks to the body. After dueling briefly on the feet, Miller was able to usher Bisping to the cage and secure a takedown; a telling accomplishment considering Bisping's noteworthy takedown defense. Miller triangled Bisping's legs with his own and methodically crept forward to full mount, but Bisping exploded his hips free, put his back on the fence and got to his feet without taking any damage.

In the second round, it became apparent that Miller's gas tank was steadily dwindling. His activity on the feet started to fade and his head became much more of a stationary target for Bisping's incessant work rate with punches. Miller spent most of the round staggering back and absorbing right hands, both upstairs and down, as well as a set of crisp knees in the clinch.

Bisping, smelling blood, came out sharp in the third while Miller was visibly exhausted. Trying a few desperation takedowns, Miller ended up on his hands and knees in the turtle position with Bisping absolutely swarming him with strikes. An unanswered series of ceaseless right hands and crushing knees to the midsection from Bisping finally convinced referee Steve Mazagatti to intervene, giving Michael Bisping the TKO victory in the third round.

Since dropping down to middleweight at UFC 83, Bisping has defeated eight of his ten foes, this being his fourth straight. The loss is Miller's second in his last ten fights. Despite their previous squabbles, both Bisping and Miller complimented one another in their post-fight interviews.
