In Deep with The Count: Michael Bisping on Mark Munoz, Anderson Silva, TRT and More


UFC-on-Fox-2-workouts-Michael-Bisping-096Since debuting as a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter Season 3 in 2006, Manchester, England’s Michael “The Count” Bisping has managed one of the longest continuous runs in the UFC’s almost 20-year history.

Debuting as a light heavyweight, Bisping has been a staple in the middleweight division since making the switch in late-2007.  Over his lengthy tenure as the resident “brash Brit,” Bisping has fought a who’s who list of UFC stalwarts, and become one of the most controversial, and yet at the same time, fan-friendly fighters of the last decade.

In this interview with MMAWeekly.com staff writer Ryan McKinnell, Bisping goes in-depth on his UFC career, his legacy, not getting to fight Anderson Silva, and much more.

Bisping also breaks down his upcoming match with Mark Munoz on Oct. 26 in his home country of England — a home that he hasn’t seen him compete on their shores in over three years.

Bisping talks about his return to the U.K., his thoughts on TRT and Vitor Belfort, as well as chiming in on the business of professional wrestling, a business that his two close friends and former training partners Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Tito Ortiz have recently made a foray into.
