Ever since Bisping’s big announcement about his retirement, fans, pundits as well as fellow fighters have been reacting to the news and have been showing their respects and admiration for the Mancunian and his storied career. Bisping has always been a highly respected fighter and has been a true inspiration for European and British fighters in particular. Bisping has now reacted to other fighters considering him an inspiration.
Bisping had been contemplating about retiring for quite a while now but it was widely expected that he would have one last fight in his home town of Manchester, England before riding off in the sunset. Thus, the sudden news about Bisping’s retirement still came as a surprise to a lot of people.

I had no idea other British fighters felt this way. Thank you for the kind words, truly humbled, and keep kicking ass and repping our country!
