CLITHEROE cagefighter Michael Bisping will hit British TV screens tonight on the new series of The Ultimate Fighter’.

The 32-year-old mixed martial arts star will appear as a team coach on the show which sees hopefuls battle it out for a six-figure contract in the American-based Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Bisping himself won series 5 of the Ultimate Fighter and broke into the UFC with a big money fight deal.

Team Bisping will hope to guide one of the Bantamweight and Lightweight prospects to the TUF 14 finale in Las Vegas on December 3rd which culminates in a bout with former Strikeforce fighter Miller in the Octagon.
