Michael Bisping: A true legend of the sport

‘The Count’ hails a 30-9 professional MMA record under his name. Although he had a few setbacks on his resume, Bisping overcame them with some stunning wins. Sadly, in 2013, in a fight against Vitor Belfort, ‘The Count’ suffered a gruesome eye injury that put his career in jeopardy.

However, the Englishman overcame all the odds and returned to the UFC octagon. Despite the injury, Bisping put on a great performance and won against one of the biggest names in the sport, Anderson Silva.

Bisping’s win over Silva opened the gates for his first-ever UFC title shot. After 23 UFC fights, ‘The Count’ received a shot at the middleweight title against Luke Rockhold in 2016.

He took this fight on 17-day notice and defeated Rockhold to become the first-ever British UFC champion. His journey from the eye injury to becoming the UFC champion is a legendary tale that will be told by many fight fans and pundits.
