So are they assuming Bisping will breeze through Leben? After Leben he gets a title shot? It makes no sense.. Leben is not an easy task for Bisping but he also isn't a top 10 middleweight so how would a win over Leben give Bisping a title shot?
Coaches always fight at the end of TUF (besides Rich Franklin and Matt Hughes) and they either get a title shot or it is a grudge match between two fighters who hate each other. (Matt Hughes/Matt Serra and Tito Ortiz/Ken Shamrock)
So I hope this news is false. Because I think Bisping still has a lot of learning of his own to do before coaching a whole team of fighters.

Makes sense for Bidping to coach UK team as he is the most visible UK fighter. UFC better hope he wins the Leben fight. By the way, I am reazlly looking forward to that fight. Hope whoever teh US coach is, he is Middleweight and would be an exciting fight with Bisping.
