Part 1: Michael Bisping movie blog

2008’s “Coolest Man in the U.K.” winner, Michael Bisping, takes viewers along for the ride as he makes the trek from England to Texas to star in a new movie entitled “Beatdown.” The film is directed by Michael Gunther and is described as an “action/drama with MMA-style fighting.” Movieset.com says,

The film stars Rudy Youngblood (“Apocalypto”) as Brandon, a young street fighter, who has fallen out of favor with the mob and is forced to fight for those close to him. “Beatdown” also features Eric Balfour (“The Texas Chainsaw Masacre”, “Hellride”), Danny Trejo (“Desperado”, “Machete”), and MMA fighter Michael “The Count” Bisping.

This is a pretty cool behind-the-scenes look Bisping treats us to. Apparently, Bobby Lashley has a part in the movie, because in part four, below, you will see Bisping in a sparring session with the former WWE star and recent Strikeforce addition.

Remember when Bisping asked Guy Ritchie to put him in his next gangster flick? Who knows, maybe it will happen one day.

Although, knocked down by Kang early in round one, Kang could not capitalize, and Bisping defended Kang’s top position well. In round two, Bisping took Kang down on three separate occasions, poured on the ground and pound, and eventually got the TKO stoppage. It was a great fight and a great showing for the Brit.
