Chael Sonnen Comments On Jason 'Mayhem' Miller, Michael Bisping As TUF Coaches

UFC middleweight Chael Sonnen took to Twitter this past weekend on the account he both runs contests on and denies is his to comment on the UFC's booking of Jason Miller and Michael Bisping as coaches of season 14 of Spike TV's 'The Ultimate Fighter'. While Michael Bisping may have extended sympathy regarding Sonnen's indefinite suspension issue, it does not appear Sonnen is returning the favor. Then again, one never knows where the real life ends and shtick begins. Here are the Tweets in question:

Michael Bisping, Jason 'Mayhem' Miller To Coach Spike TV's 'The Ultimate Fighter' Season 14

According to a report on MixedMartialArts.com, UFC President Dana White has confirmed UFC middleweights Michael Bisping and Jason Miller will coach the next season of Spike TV's 'The Ultimate Fighter'. Miller was originally scheduled to face Aaron Simpson at UFC 132. That bout has been cancelled and a replacement is being sought for Simpson.

Chael Sonnen was originally pegged to coach opposite Bisping, but was unable to receive a second's license in Nevada before taping of the show. This is Miller's first fight in his second run in the UFC.

Miller most recently competed in September of 2010 where he defeated Kazushi Sakuraba by submission. Bisping is coming off of a win over Jorge Rivera at UFC 127 by second-round TKO.

This is the fourteenth season of the reality series and will feature featherweight and bantamweight contestants, a first for the series.

No date or event has been set for the eventual meeting of Bisping and Miller.
