Biography

Global Guy Now living and training in California, Bisping was born on British soil in Cyprus and grew up in a military family near Manchester, England

Sporting Life Bisping started martial arts at age eight, and was routinely winning kickboxing and Japanese jiu-jitsu competitions by his teens.

Paying His Dues Bisping was paid nothing for his MMA debut and he had to pay for his girlfriend’s ticket to the event. He went on to win every major belt on the European circuit. • Training hundreds of miles outside of his hometown, Bisping sometimes slept in his car to save time and gas. • Frustrated and about to get “a real job,” a girlfriend at the time told him to stick with it – a year later, he was cast on The Ultimate Fighter.

Upstairs, Downstairs His nickname “The Count” points to regal lineage – Bisping is a direct descendant of a Medieval Polish Count who was awarded lands in the 14th century after winning a famous battle for the King. • Gymmates who heard this fact, began calling him "The Count" as a joke, and the moniker stuck. • Pre-MMA, Bisping held far more working-class positions such as upholsterer slaughterman, builder and laborer.

Finisher Bisping has 16 wins by KO and three by submission. • He’s also been awarded the Fight of the Night bonus three times in his UFC career.
TUF Staple Bisping won TUF’s third season and went on to coach Team UK on season 9 opposite Dan Henderson. As coach, he produced both winners Ross Pearson and James Wilks. • He coached again on season 14 against Jason Miller, mentoring eventual featherweight winner Diego Brandao.

The Mouth of Manchester
Cocky and as sharp with his wit as he is with his accurate strikes, his tendency to fire off zingers during colorful fight build-ups has made him a love-him-or-hate-him star on both sides of the pond. • Sample line: He claims his favorite grappling technique is the “triple-decker pecker wrecker.” (See more)

Star Power The UK’s biggest mixed martial arts star, Bisping has fought inside the Octagon 20 times and helped re-launch the UFC in his homeland. • The Count has headlined UFC events in Manchester, Sao Paulo, Las Vegas, London and Birmingham.

Big Screen Bisping A huge martial arts movie fan Bisping’s own acting credentials include roles in the British television soap series “Hollyoaks Later,” the action movie “Beatdown,” and the Noel Clarke sci-fi flick “The Anomaly.”
