UFC Hall of Famer Michael Bisping has fought six years in the UFC with one eye, but with just an eye he was able to knock out Luke Rockhold at UFC 199.
Not only that he even fought legendary champion Anderson Silva also with just one eye. He lost his right eye back in 2013 when a brutal knockout head kick knocked Bisping out and also detaching his retina with it.
With a series of surgeries, he was able to get a fight in the UFC again, but the pain in his eyes continued and as a result, he had one more injury where the doctors completely removed his eyeballs. Despite doctors saying that he will never be able to fight again, Bisping defied all odds and not only did he make his Octagon return, but he also became the champion by knocking out the reigning champion.
In his recent podcast “Believe You Me”, Michael Bisping gave the fans a look of at his prosthetic eyes and said that this was the reason behind him wearing sunglasses during press conferences.
