TUF 14: Team Bisping vs. Team Miller Live Results and Analysis of Episode 9

Bleacher ReportSenior Writer INovember 16, 2011

The Ultimate Fighter: Team Bisping vs. Team Miller is slowly drawing to a close ahead of the live finale on Dec. 3 in Las Vegas, but there's still plenty of action to go.

Dennis Bermudez out-blasted and outlasted Akira Corassani to give Jason Miller one half of the featherweight final. Corassani, much like his coach Michael Bisping, had been doing all the pre-fight talking, but it was Team Miller's competitor who snatched the victory via guillotine choke and got to do the post-fight bragging.

He also gets to advance to the finale at the Palms where he will face the winner of the explosive Diego Brandao and the hectored Bryan Caraway.

Before we fill out the other half of the featherweight pairing, there's some business to address on the 135-pound side of things.

There are still four bantamweights alive with John Dodson set to grapple with Johnny Bedford and Dustin Pague squaring off against T.J. Dillishaw.

Both Bedford and Pague will be the sentimental favorites given Dodson's duplicitous performance in the house and Dillishaw's arrogant, self-centered attitude.

Of course, Dodson and Dillishaw also appear to be the actual favorites, since both have above-average pedigrees and have looked polished in the cage.

Whether or not perception is reality remains to be seen, but it has sure seemed like little John and T.J. boast fight games that are more developed than their opponents.

Which only makes the possibility of an upset more intriguing.
