Ultimate fighting sensation Michael Bisping has been awarded the prestigious UFC fighter of the year award.

The road to this year’s award was arguably more daunting than any other award in the history of the UFC universe. According to the fighter, the achievement is still marveling to both the UFC universe and him as he did have some internal doubts if he would end up Scooping the award.

The 37-year old fighter, who began his UFC career in 2006, had since progressed to the Ultimate Fighters reality series. Where he won his first bout by a TKO, followed by a commanding submission in the semifinal and then capped it with an impressive knockout of Josh Hayes in the final, to be crowned the light heavyweight winner. Bisping did not seem to slow down as he took the opportunity at UFC 66 to once again shine on the biggest of stages as he knocked out his opponent Eric Shafer at four minutes twenty-four seconds of the first round.

Following this victory, expectations are once again high with the announcement that UFC will be returning to show in London, this would provide Bisping with another opportunity to show the stuff he’s made of when he fights the impressive Yoel Romero who boast of an undefeated record in the UFC with eight wins and eight knockouts in his UFC career.

Despite finding himself in the midst of other fighters who have had a stellar year, it was the performance of the 37-year-old that stood out as he was eventually awarded “Fighter of the Year” for 2016. In addition, it has been a year of an unforgettable high for the current UFC middleweight champion who said his performance so far has nailed him a movie role in the upcoming film xXx.
