Michael Bisping Says He Deserve UFC Hall Of Fame, But He’ll Not Campaign For That Honor

Do you think former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping deserves UFC Hall Of Fame?

Earlier this month, Bisping, announced his retirement from MMA. There was speculation of him to go for last “retirement fight” in 2018, but common sense ultimately prevailed. But there’s still one moment that rises above all others for the decorated fighter, his stunning victory over Luke Rockhold at UFC 199.

Bisping defended his strap once in a hard-fought revenge win over Dan Henderson, then lost his title in a back-and-forth battle against former two-division champion Georges St-Pierre at UFC 217.

“It’s not something I’ve necessarily thought about but it’s something a lot of people have said to me,” Bisping said about getting into the UFC Hall of Fame.

“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.”

Michael Bisping also holds the record for the most significant strikes landed in UFC history and currently tied for the most wins in UFC history and most fights in UFC history. He also became the first fighter in UFC history to win “The Ultimate Fighter” (TUF) reality series, a UFC championship and made a successful title defense.

What do you think he should receive UFC Hall Of Fame honor?
