PIC: Bloodied Michael Bisping thanks his fans after victory that “means the world”

Tom Victor

Emotions were riding high at UFC London as Michael Bisping took on Anderson Silva looking to remain undefeated on British soil.

The Lancastrian fighter now has 18 wins from 18 in the UK after a topsy-turvy victory over his Brazilian opponent, and will likely look for a title fight next.

It clearly meant a lot to the veteran, who turned 37 this morning a little worse for wear physically but very much in a celebratory mood.

And after dusting himself down, the veteran knew just who to thank – the loyal fans and the British public who have got behind him throughout a lengthy career.

After an emotional post-fight press conference, you’d need a heart of stone to deny one of Britain’s all time greats his moment in the sun.
