Last night's season finale of The Ultimate Fighter ended with each coach telling us exactly what he thinks of the other guy; basically, Dan Henderson thinks Michael Bisping's a douchebag, and Bisping thinks Henderson's time has passed. And maybe they're both right. But with three weeks left until they face each other at UFC 100, tensions aren't exactly building. Here's a highlight from a media conference call held earlier today:

Meh. I personally have no desire to even watch this fight.

I'll be rooting for Bisping, though. Never been much of a Hendo fan. I don't know why, either.

I'm rooting for Hendo in this fight, I've been a fan all through his Pride days and can't wait to see him sit Bisping down and impose his will after watching this entire season of TUF. Should be a good fight though.

Being able to watch Bisping lay on his back while getting his face smashed in with elbows is a good enough reason for me to watch!!!!!

I have a feeling this will be a good sleeper fight. As long as Hendo doesn't find himself swinging for the fences and hitting air all night. He needs to actually use his wrestling in this one. Bisping has underrated foot work and he's got pretty good scrambling.

Hendo needs to take him to task, though. War Dan

True that . I think Henderson is just the better fighter. I def. could see Dan loosing a unanimous/split decision on points but Bisping doesn't have one punch KO power and Henderson has a great chin I see nothing stopping Henderson from grabbing him and putting him on the mat and beating him senseless for three rounds.

If he chooses to stand and bang I will be a little worried but I also know that Henderson could knock him out so really Bisping's only chance in this for in my opinion is hit and run the whole night which is awfully hard with a greco guy like Dan who pretty much fought a guy with the same plan in Franklin and got him to the ground who I feel has much better take down defense.

When I think about it for me this fight comes down to Bisping not having a guy thats like Henderson but Henderson can find a guy that can mimic what Bisping does. Nothing Bisping does Henderson cdan't prepare for but when Biping trains for Hendo I think he's gonna have a hard time in training mimicing a guy with that great of a clinch game. I could be wrong and he may have someone there but I would imagine training for Bisping woulc be much easier then training for Henderson especially when you look at whose in there camps.

I think this is going to be a pretty one sided fight with hendo in charge from pretty much start to finish

Hendo's time has not passed. He's the only 'old man' in the UFC right now that's still out there fighting hard every single fight. Chuck's time has passed. Randy's may be gone as well. Hendo though? He's the only old man in this sport that just won't lay down for all these young guns. I find it hard to NOT love this guy.

War Hendo all the way. It's about time Bisping fought a real warrior and not a B level fighter.

I have always thought bisping was overrated since the elvis fight. He has exposed himself to me as a arrogant selfish ass and I hope Hendo throws him down and pounds his face like GSP did to BJ. 3 rounds of pounding, thats what bisping needs to knock him down a notch or 2....I never disliked him before TUF, just thought he was alot of hype but found the more I see of him its gets very easy to dislike him and his attitude....

you dont need to sell a fight when its surrounded by mir/lesnar and GSP/alves. who really cares about bisping/henderson?

i really like henderson, he's probably the best coach TUF has ever had. i just dont care for bisping. he's very over rated and his personality is like dry humping a cactus. of all the TUF winners across the seasons Bisping has had the easiest opponents. He's a joke and its unfortunate he is touted as the UKs next big thing when they have many far more talented and charismatic fighters.

i hope hendo knocks him out fast so we can get some prelim action.

I care about Bisping V Henderson.

As far as I am concerned Henderson is a horrible match up for Bisping. Regardless of the supposed "technical striking advantage" Bisping has over Henderson, the fact is Bisping doesnt hit that hard and Henderson has a great chin. Not forgetting Hendo's known punching power.

Henderson will dominate this fight in my opinion. He will definately stand up and bang, getting the better of the exchanges, and when he choses will take Bisping down and GNP him.
