His first taste of a 'no holds barred' competition came at the early age of 15 in a fight that was the precursor to MMA, known as Knock Down Sport Budo (KSBO). At the age of 18, Bisping abandoned his martial arts training "to pursue real life" and proceeded to work at everything from being a postman to an upholsterer to a factory worker, but his calling to fight was too strong and Bisping began training in boxing, Jujutsu, kickboxing and karate on the advice of Allan Clarkin, owner of Black Knights Kickboxing, who saw potential in the young fighter. He was the recipient of the North West Area and Pro British light heavyweight titles in kickboxing. In terms of fighting style, Bisping possesses excellent and diverse striking skills. He utilizes kicks, knees and punches to fend off opponents. Since dropping to the middleweight division, power on his feet has become more pronounced. Bisping is also an excellent submission fighter. He is good from both his back and the more dominant positions. He is considered a very tough fighter who always comes to the fight in shape, and tends to stop the far majority of his opponents.
