Biography

Michael Bisping TUF bio & videos

Running at 7am, MMA at 10am, Thai 11:30am, sleep in the afternoon and weights at 6pm.

When and why did you start training for fighting? I’ve been doing martial arts since I was eight years old, but I started training for mixed martial arts specifically in summer of 2003.  I had done kickboxing and jiu-jitsu for years, but I took it up as a career in 2003.  I had a lot of jobs but I had never been happy in anything I did, so when I did this, it was the best thing I’ve ever done in my life – I’ve never been happier and so far things have been going really well.

Accomplishments in amateur competition?
1995 Silver medal – world jiu-jitsu championships; 5 x British kickboxing champion; God knows how many times British Sport jiu-jitsu champion.

Accomplishments in pro competition?
Cage Rage Champion, Cage Warriors Champion, FX3 Champion, TUF 3 Champion, Coach on TUF9.

Ranks in any martial arts styles:
None, unless you count 73rd in World Ninja Games 1999 (lack of smoke bomb skills let me down)

Favorite grappling technique:
Triangle & Triple Decker Pecker Wrecker

Favorite Striking technique:
Flying knee

Do you have any heroes?
I’ve got nothing for respect for the guys at the top of the chain – guys like Chuck Liddell and Georges St-Pierre, and guys like Shogun Rua – I admire his style and I think he’s an exciting fighter.

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? 
It’s a dream come true.  It’s the top organization in the world, and here it is, three years after I started, and I’m here.  This is just a stepping stone into the UFC and hopefully I can go on and have a decent career here.  I still can’t believe it, to be honest – it’s almost surreal.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? 
I went for a little bit and then left.

What was your job before you started fighting?
I was an upholsterer, making furniture, when I switched to MMA.  Before that, you name it, I’ve done it, but all the crappy jobs though, nothing too flamboyant.  I was a slaughterman, builder, and laborer.
