It has to be his win over Luke Rockhold to win the UFC Middleweight Title at UFC 199. Not only did he avenge an earlier loss to Rockhold, he did so in explosive fashion, stopping Rockhold in just three and a half minutes by TKO. Winning a championship and beating a rival at the same time is a sweet moment, and what I’ll remember most about Bisping.

Michael Bisping’s most memorable fight and his crowning achievement has to be his upset win over Luke Rockhold at UFC 199. It was a last minute fight thrown together to save a pay-per-view that ended up being a turning point in the middleweight division. Bisping’s stunning knockout in June 2016 started a chain of events of odd title defenses, title vacancies, and interim championships, that is still being sorted out to this day.

Losing to GSP. The fight was great and probably one of the best fights and comebacks of all times. Bisping fought a good fight, damn good fight but GSP got him in the end. No shame in looking great in a fight against a fellow legend. Michael Bisping looked his absolute best, it wasn’t enough but he pulled something out of GSP we haven’t seen in quite some time.
