11. Michael Bisping – DJ
The first British UFC champion, Bisping is incredibly popular with fans. He’s down-to-earth, funny, and never shy to give his honest opinion on any situation. ‘The Count’ was a very solid standup fighter with sublime cardio. Bisping famously knocked out Luke Rockhold on two weeks’ notice to win the UFC middleweight title.
But it could have been so much different. Bisping actually worked as a DJ as a young man when he was trying to pay his bills. He played a number of underground clubs and raves in the northwest of England before finally going full-time as an MMA fighter.
