Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping has always been an entertainer, on and off the octagon. The former UFC middleweight champion has done it all, from fighting the best in the octagon to acting in movies and even being a commentator/analyst. He finds success in every endeavor he wishes to take on. Lately, he’s been spending most of his time on YouTube, creating videos for his main channel alongside running his own podcast.

Bisping defied all odds, being the underdog going into the fight and still managing to win,
