It has only been a few days since Jason "Mayhem" Miller lost to Michael Bisping at The Ultimate Fighter Finale, and UFC president Dana White had strong words for the former Strikeforce veteran in an interview with MMAfighting.com.
"I still don't know," said White, who was busy promoting the next UFC on Fox show earlier today in Chicago.
"It was bad. To be honest, believe me, my Twitter has been blowing up with all the Mayhem fans blasting me, but facts are facts. It was the worst standup I've ever seen in my life. I don't know if I've ever seen worse standup. The guy's been in the business for over 10 years. It looked like it was his first fight ever. It was the weirdest thing I've ever seen."
After an intense season of The Ultimate Fighter, with Miller and Bisping coaching opposite of each other, the trash-talk hyped up the fight to a point where a loss for either guy would be a serious blow to their goals of title contention.
Miller won the first round in many fans' eyes during the five-round main event, but Bisping eventually wore down his opponent and won via TKO in the third round. It was the second loss in the UFC for Miller, who was last seen fighting in the Octagon against Georges St-Pierre before the current UFC welterweight champion had held the belt.
"Some of the punches that were thrown by Mayhem Miller in this fight, you could go to a girls' Tae Bo class and see better form, better stand-up. It was embarrassing," White said.
He also gave his opinions on Bisping, who picked up his fourth victory in a row.
"Michael Bisping is easy to hate so people want to discredit him because they don't like him, but Bisping is the real deal," White said. "He's a tough guy."
Bisping will now face jiu-jitsu ace Demian Maia at UFC on Fox 2, which goes down January 28 at the United Center.
