With only 2 weeks notice Michael Bisping became the first Briton to win a UFC title with a sensational first-round knockout against middleweight champion Luke Rockhold in Los Angeles last night.

The 37-year-old, who was given only 17 days notice to replace injured Chris Weidman for his first title chance which was dealt an underdog card due to age and time to prepare, he floored Rockhold with a sweet left hook in the first round which shocked everyone!

Bisping didn’t finish there and another left shot saw the American down again moments later and following a flurry of devastating head and body shots, the fight was stopped after just three minutes, 36 seconds at the Forum.

congratulations to Micheal and his team for bringing another title home to the UK – let’s see if Conor can do the same in August against Diaz.
