Michael Bisping knows he has achieved enough in his career to deserve a spot in the UFC Hall of Fame. Despite it, “The Count” thinks its something he shouldn’t ask for.
Bisping won’t be joining UFC’s 2018 list of inductees, though the seasoned fighter knows that he worked well enough to deserve it.
Do you think so?
His personal MMA record is a fair proof that Bisping can’t go unnoticed when we talk about the UFC Hall of Fame. The middleweight fighter did just about everything in his professional career to be an ace to the UFC.
The Count started his prolific winning catalogue with a glass trophy from The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season three.
After moving to the middleweight division, Bisping battled against the creams of the crop at 185 pounds. Advancing in his career, the combatant perpetually asked the UFC to give him the next toughest opponent regardless of the name.
In fact, Bisping broke the record of the longest reigning middleweight champion in history when he defeated Anderson Silva in 2016. Just a few months after, he knocked out Luke Rockhold. This fight he accepted on less than two weeks notice led him to win the middleweight belt.
Not to mention Bisping’s name currently tied for the most number of wins and fights in the history of UFC.
Despite all these achievements his name has with it, you can’t expect the 39-year-old British fighter to lobby for a hallowed hall spot.
Here’s his explanation why: (Source: MMAnyt)
“It’s not something I’ve necessarily thought about but it’s something a lot of people have said to me.”
“It’s not something I’m campaigning for or anything like that. That’s not something you campaign for. That’s embarrassing. It’s up to the UFC to recognize that. I’d like to think so, I’ve put the work in and I think I deserve it but that’s down to the UFC.”
What’s your take on this? Is Bisping hall of fame-worthy?
