Michael Bisping Signs Eight-Fight Contract Extension With UFC

via <a href=""></a>

UFC middleweight and TUF 3 winner Michael Bisping looks to be around the UFC for a while longer. He already has fourteen fights under his belt in the organization, and he has now signed on for up to eight more. MMA Junkie brings the news:

The polarizing middleweight has signed a new eight-fight deal with the UFC and relocated his training camp to a gym in Orange, Calif., his manager, Anthony McGann, told

The camp in question is for his December 3rd bout with Jason "Mayhem" Miller. Both fighters were the coaches on The Ultimate Fighter 14, and they will compete on the night of the Finale. Most TUF coach fights take place on pay-per-view, but the UFC went in a different direction with this one. Bisping, a native of Manchester, England, has defeated the likes of Matt Hamill, Denis Kang, Chris Leben and Yoshihiro Akiyama over his five years in the promotion.
