Publisher's Summary

With brand new material exclusive to this Updated American Edition, here - in his own words - is the story of the newest member of the Ultimate Fighting Championship Hall of Fame, Britain's own Rocky Balboa, Michael Bisping.

Featuring an entirely new chapter for US readers, the story of his induction into the UFC Hall of Fame, fresh insights about his fighting career, never-before-told stories about his film and TV career, and a harrowing account of his fighting off attempted kidnappers while filming in South Africa, Quitters Never Win tells the incredible story of how he went from rough and humble beginnings and then on to a legendary mixed martial arts career capped by winning the Middleweight Championship in one of the greatest upsets in UFC history.

Loaded with the humor and brutal honesty that first won him a following on the television show Ultimate Fighter 3, Bisping recounts his record setting 13-year fight career battling the likes of Anderson Silva, Georges St-Pierre, and Dan Henderson.

The most engaging UFC color analyst in recent memory, and a budding film and television star, Bisping tells his story in a way that only he knows how.

Meh

How does Bisbing go from running a successful podcast where people enjoy hearing his voice and takes to having some random narrate the book? completely ruined it for me. Don't recommend

Great Story, not a fan of Cowley

I fairly enjoyed Michael Bisping's retelling of his career in this book through his rose-colored lenses. However the choice of using Jonathan Cowley was a mistake in my opinion, he does not capture the fighting spirit in his voice needed to retell Michael bisping's career. Not to mention the constant mispronunciation of words that distract from the story being told.

Fist to the Face

I've always been a fan, so I may be a bit bias. Good back story, from early youth, to the love of his life, questionable characters, and his current day status. If you've never been in a fight, a real fight, and want to know what it is about, this is a blow-by-blow account. Michael Bisping has earned everything, including the unfortunate life altering injuries that come with his profession.

Good Book

Bisping's story is a good one. I think this would have been a 5 star review if Bisping himself had read the audiobook. The narrator does a decent job but lacks the passion & emotion that Bisping would have brought.

Best MMA of fight book yet.

The only reason I didn’t give the book a complete five star review is due to the fact I would have like Michael to read and narrate the book himself.

Great

Great book! Definitely teared up more than I'd like to admit. Felt like I was in the arena with him, chest swelling with pride. The walk through the dark arena with battle scars like a gladiator who had been freed, the pride for his country that he shows after each fight, love for his family and fans, and many more. Good stuff Mike!

Great story about a the rise of a champion

Loved the book. Michael Bisping rise from humble beginnings through sheer will as much as athletic ability and martial arts skill to become aUFC champion. A feat made specially impressive because of the different challenges physical and emotional he had to face in his career. A great read and humorous at times but it would have been nice to hear it in Bisping's own voice instead of an actor. His character and personality come across though and make this worthwhile and impacting.

Great Book but just it was missing Micheal Bisping voice

The book is amazing especially when you also have the hard copy . The details of Micheal life are not only motivational but also encouraging . Weather you are you an MMA fan or not this is a autobiography will help you regain your focus no matter the situation you are in . The only thing missing is Michael Bisping himself certain phrases, certain events, would have been told or delivered differently . If you have ever heard him on “The Believe You Me “ podcast his personality and humor gives it more life . This book either in audio form or the physical copy is a must to check out .

Conceive, believe, achieve.....shut the **** up

Super impressed with The Count's memory! This dude remembers every single little detail about his life. Loved hearing all of the behind the scenes stories and random details about his life. Best autobiography ever!

Excellent

This is a great read for anyone looking for a little extra motivation, no matter where you need it. I had no idea just what it took to achieve what Michael did throughout his career.
