Early Life

Michael Bisping was born on the 28th of February, 1979, in Nicosia, Cyprus. Bisping attended St Augustine’s Roman Catholic High School, Billington.

His father, Jan, was in the British Army and his mother is Irish. Bisping began training Jujutsu at the age of 8. When he was 15 years old he competed as an amateur in Britain’s first “no holds barred” competition. 

 

Career 

Bisping was featured on the UFC’s ‘The Ultimate Fighter 3′ reality television series in 2006. Five months after his victory in the TUF 3 finals, Bisping was slated to fight Eric Schafer at The Ultimate Fighter 4 finale but withdrew because of problems acquiring his visa.

In 2007, he scored a TKO win over Elvis Sinosic at UFC 70 in Manchester. He was a special guest referee at the Cage Warriors events Enter The Wolfslair’ in 2005. 

Since the start of his MMA career, people had been advising Bisping that he was a little too small for light heavyweight and would do better at middleweight. With the support of UFC president Dana White, Bisping then decided to drop down a weight division, following his loss to Evans.

In 2008 at UFC 83, Bisping made his middleweight debut against Charles McCarthy. Bisping won by TKO, as McCarthy was unable to continue after the first round due to a forearm injury he sustained after receiving an unanswered series of knees and uppercuts from Bisping. 

Bisping’s next fight at middleweight was scheduled to be on 7 June 2008 at UFC 85 in London, against Chris Leben. However, after Leben was sentenced to jail for 35 days and unable to compete, Jason Day stepped in.

As of 2019, Michael Bisping’s net worth is $9 Million dollars.
