Michael "The Count" Bisping came in first place for "ZOO’s 100 Coolest British men of 2008." Here’s what Bisping had to say when he received the award:
"I am totally shocked, but honoured to be voted the coolest man in the UK by ZOO readers."
Here’s a snip from Ben Todd, the editor of Zoo Magazine:
"Although most people will be surprised at this year’s winner, the
result reveals the growing influence that UFC is having on young men in
Britain – with the sport now seriously rivalling boxing in the
popularity stakes…Intriguingly, the poll also suggests a resurgence in respect for hard
men, perhaps due to the harsher economic times, and the death of the
metrosexual, with Bisping, Calzaghe and Bear Grylls all featuring in
the top 10."
