Michael Bisping defeated former Middleweight Champion Luke Rockhold in spectacular fashion at UFC 199 and became Britons very first UFC Champion.
‘The Count’ knocked out Rockhold in just 3:36 seconds into Round 1 after replacing an injured Chris Weidman and taking the fight on just 2 weeks notice.
“I am so happy right now. I started fighting when I came out of my mother, really. Bisping said in his octagon interview. “I have always been a fighter, It always got me in trouble but there is nothing I do better in this life than fighting”.
Bisping thanked his family and the many British fans that had shown their support to him during his journey to become the new UFC Middleweight Champion.
“People say I don’t deserve it, people say I got no punching power. I knew I could punch, this guy demolishes everybody, finishes them in the first round. Well check this out, first round knock out, left hook, Jason Parillo thank you, everybody, the UK thank you so much”.
