Michael Bisping has a flare for the dramatic.

Never was that more clear than in his shocking first-round knockout win over Luke Rockhold in the main event of last Saturday’s (June 4, 2016) UFC 199 from Inglewood, California, where he knocked out heavily favored former champion Luke Rockhold with a jaw-dropping first round sequence.

Bisping has always been a polarizing figure in the UFC, but whether you love him or hate him, there’s no doubt that 2016 has already been his biggest year by far, and it’s come on the heels of two frankly surprising wins over two of the most highly-regarded middleweights in the UFC.
