Shine & MCD by Arrangement with Paradigm Agency present: MICHAEL BISPING – Tales From The Octagon
Micheal Bisping, UFC Hall of Fame fighter and former
Middleweight Champion brings his incredible story to Belfast's Ulster Hall, 22 October 2022.
His journey has taken him from England’s North West through to the top of the MMA world, becoming the only British champion in UFC history. Alongside a burgeoning Hollywood movie career, the latest chapter in his life sees Michael host a hugely successful podcast, as well as a commentating for ESPN, BT Sports, and formerly Fox Sports. From fighting stories to life outside the ring, his unwavering drive and determination will make for an inspirational and entertaining evening for all UFC and sports fans alike.
When working numerous dead-end jobs to make ends meet whilst all the time training in boxing, kickboxing, and Jiu-Jitsu, Michael realised he had the potential to be a world-class fighter, and doing so would be his best opportunity to provide for his family.
He rededicated himself to this craft. Michael eventually went on to win The Ultimate Fighter 3 in 2006, kick-starting his professional career, and ten years later in 2016 at UFC 199, he became the first British fighter to become a UFC Champion.
After an incredible 13 year career, which included the loss of his right eye, Michael became a UFC analyst with BT Sport and ESPN, named FanSided MMA’s 2019 Analyst of the Year and authored Sunday Times Best Seller Quitter’s Never Win. He’s the host of the “Believe You Me” podcast and has launched a successful acting career, having been featured in xXx Return of Xander Cage, Den of Thieves and announcing his latest roles in Den of Thieves 2 and the lead in the upcoming film titled The Journeyman. His documentary titled Bisping was released in 2021.
