The Count is Out For TUF 4 Finale

This Saturday is the Ultimate Fighter 4 finale. In the welterweight final it’s Chris Lytle vs. Matt Serra. In the middleweight final Patrick Cote will be facing Travis Lutter. There are a few other matches scheduled for that evening, mostly other fighter from TUF 4. However one match that was highly anticipated was recently cancelled. The great Michael Bisping was scheduled to fight in his first fight since knocking out Josh Haynes on the TUF 3 finale. Bisping is currently 11-0, but he will have to wait a while to run his undefeated streak to 12. The Count is from Liverpool, England and he could not get a visa to travel to the U.S. for the fight. When the UFC President told Bisping the bad news, he reportedly said "Dana, no" in his classic voice. First we won’t let Mexicans into the country and now we won’t let the great Bisping in. U.S. lost some fame for that one. Seriously, though I hope Bisping and the UFC get the issues with the visa worked out because the fans definitely want to see the Count back in the octagon soon. You can view the complete fight card for TUF 4 finale here. Also, if you have missed any episodes of season 4, I saw a commercial advertising that Spike TV will be airing a marathon of the entire season all day Saturday leading up to the finale that evening.
