Michael Bisping Makes TUF 14 Finale Weigh-Ins a Memorable Affair

LAS VEGAS -- UFC middleweight Michael Bisping showed up to the TUF 14 Finale weigh-ins looking like a man in a foul mood, and his disposition only got worse from there. The crowd at the Palms casino erupted in boos every time the Brit's name was mentioned, and it didn't help matters when he came in 1/4-pound over the middleweight limit for his bout with Jason "Mayhem" Miller on Saturday night.

Even after stripping down behind a towel, Bisping was still over the mark, leaving him with an hour to cut the weight. After putting his clothes back on he stormed out of the room, though Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer said it was his understanding that Bisping would be coming back soon to weigh in again.

Before Bisping left, however, Miller jabbed him one last time in his post-fight remarks, telling fans that the time for talking was over and adding, "Now boo this man!" The fans, not surprisingly, obliged. When UFC color commentator Joe Rogan asked the crowd to show a little love for Bisping, the fighter remarked that he "couldn't give a [expletive] about getting [expletive] love. All I care about is smashing this [expletive]'s head in."

Then he turned his attention on the still jeering crowd, telling them "[Expletive] you all," before extending his middle finger to the fans on his way off the stage. And with that, Bisping was gone.
