UFC middleweight Michael Bisping announced Saturday that he has split with longtime gym Wolfslair Academy, confirming the rumored riff on his official Twitter page.

“Yeah, it’s true. I left Wolfslair,” Bisping wrote. “I’ve done martial arts since I was eight years old. It was a phase of my training there, but I have now moved on.”

Bisping recently saw a four-fight winning streak snapped when he was outpointed by Chael Sonnen in a close unanimous decision defeat at UFC on Fox 2. The loss cost the Brit a shot at reigning middleweight champion Anderson Silva, who is now expected to square off with Sonnen for a second time at a to-be-named event in June.

A former Cage Rage light heavyweight champion, Bisping was introduced to UFC fans in 2006 as a cast member of “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 3. After winning the show with a victory over Josh Haynes, “The Count” rattled off three more wins before falling to Rashad Evans in 2007, prompting the Brit to drop to 185 pounds.

Bisping has posted an Octagon record of 8-3 as a middleweight, besting the likes of Chris Leben, Dennis Kang, Yoshihiro Akiyama and Jason Miller, among others. A three-time “Fight of the Night” award winner, Bisping owns 14 of his 22 career wins by knockout.
