Dan Henderson became the official coach Saturday night at UFC 93 for Team USA on season nine of The Ultimate Fighter which will air on Spike TV beginning April 1. His team will be competing against Team U.K. coached by Michael Bisping.
At the conclusion of season nine, Coach Bisping will face Coach Henderson inside The Octagon. According to a new report, if Michael Bisping is successful in that fight he will be granted a Middleweight Title shot against the number one fighter in the world, UFC Middleweight Champion, Anderson Silva.
This is an incredible opportunity for Bisping who had been a contestant on season three of the very reality series he will be coaching. Bisping’s only loss inside The Octagon came from the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, Rashad Evans at UFC 78 in November of 2007. Since then he has reeled off three straight victories.
