"I was shocked but honoured to win," Bisping said. "I don't think of myself as especially cool and sometime it doesn't seem like I have that cool a lifestyle rolling around with a load of sweaty guys in the gym.

"But with this kind of support I think I can win the UFC Middleweight Title in 2009. And that will be cool!"
