British UFC superstar Michael Bisping will be signing copies of new UFC book ‘UFC Octagon’ at 5:30pm on Thursday 4 December at zavvi Oxford Street.
Michael Bisping is the face of British MMA and after bursting onto the American scene by winning series three of The Ultimate Fighter, Bisping’s career has gone from strength to strength. Originally fighting at light-heavyweight, Bisping won four times in The UFC before a narrow points defeat to Rashad Evans prompted him to drop to his true weight. A middleweight debut victory over Charles McCarthy, courtesy of about 20 knees, was good, as was his victory over Jason Day. Bisping is about to step up about two levels after outboxing American Chris Leben in Birmingham at UFC 89, plus he’s about to coach on "TUF 9", where UK goes head-to-head with USA.
