Win or lose Saturday, Michael Bisping will be the UK coach on season 9 of The Ultimate Fighter.
As reported by Fighters Only Magazine, UFC President Dana White revealed the plans for Bisping to the fighters of UFC 89 at Friday's weigh-ins. White also said that former PRIDE champion Dan Henderson and ex-UFC middleweight titleholder Rich Franklin are being considered for the opposing coaching job.
"We're looking for the right fight," he said, explaining that the chosen coach would have to be a "step up" from Bisping's previous opponents.
Asked if Henderson and Franklin were the two names on the shortlist, he confirmed: "That is who we are looking at."
