At times it has seemed like it would never come, but finally – after about a hundred years of ups and downs in the Octagon – Michael Bisping is finally getting his title shot.

The trash-talking Brit will step in for the injured Chris Weidman and take on Luke Rockhold in the main event of UFC 199.

Bisping’s last loss in the cage was against Rockhold back in 2014. But he’s since rattled off a trio of wins, most recently against Anderson Silva, and, well, that’s how that goes.
