If you are not familiar with the name Siyar Bahadurzada by now, there's a near-certainty that you will be familiar with his name after this upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter.
The 20-4-1 Afghan prospect, who reigns as the current Shooto Light Heavyweight Champion and Ultimate Glory Welterweight World Series Champion, has been making some noise overseas for the past nine years, and his hard work has put the Golden Glory prospect one step closer to finally earning the fight deal he has been hungry for and earning his stripes in the Stateside circuit.
Bahadurzada remains one of the only Welterweights in MMA, apart from the entire Welterweight roster of Bellator Fighting Championships, to not be under contract with Zuffa LLC., the company that purchased Strikeforce and reacquired the likes of Nick Diaz and "Ruthless" Robbie Lawler earlier this year.
Also acquired by the UFC is current TUF 14 coach and consummate half-fighter-half-entertainment-spectacle Jason "Mayhem" Miller, who has acquired Bahadurzada as the striking coach for Team Miller, or "Team Mayhem," as the commercials for TUF 14 will tell you.
Miller has already exhibited a passionately mutual hatred for opposing coach and TUF 3 Light Heavyweight winner Michael "The Count" Bisping, who considers Miller to be "the f**king class clown".
Bisping's choice of words have done more than just light Mayhem's fire, as Bahadurzada has made it clear he does not like Bisping or his choice of verbiage, and it would not be out of the question to believe that Bisping shares a mutual dislike for Bahadurzada.
Now, "Siyar The Great" might have his crosshairs on a chance to one day compete for the UFC Welterweight Title, but he hasn't done poorly as a 185er himself.
If he fought Bisping at 185, could he stand a chance to decisively upset the Brit?
It's always possible, and to further decipher the answer, it is my pleasure to present to you this, a head-to-toe breakdown of "Michael The Count" vs. "Siyar The Great."
You might be surprised at what you find.
