Michael Bisping is truly one of the greatest UFC fighters to ever enter the Octagon.
Bisping's achievements in the Octagon were recognised by UFC, who announced that Michael Bisping will be headlining the UFC Hall of Fame Class of 2019 this Summer. The induction ceremony is set to take place in July of this year.
Dana White released a statement, where he praised Bisping and talked about how he deserved his place in the Hall of Fame for his contribution to Mixed Martial Arts.
“It’s hard to have the level of talent needed to compete in UFC for any amount of time, but Michael Bisping was able to have an 11-year career where he became a world champion and won The Ultimate Fighter, not many people can say that. He also came back and coached The Ultimate Fighter and is now one of the best analysts on our broadcast team. Michael has been a huge part of not only building our brand, but also the sport of mixed martial arts. He absolutely deserves to be in the UFC Hall of Fame. Congratulations.” - Dana White
The former fighter retired late last year in December of 2018. Bisping was the first-ever British UFC Champion when he won the Middleweight Championship in 2016.
