Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Quitters Never Win, by Michael Bisping.

Some people are born to be a certain thing.

And I was a born fighter.

At the age of eight, Michael Bisping began his training in martial arts. By the time he was 15, he was fighting in his first no holds barred competition. When he turned professional and joined the UFC he was sure about one thing: only a world championship title would do. A British underdog in the greatest fighting championship on earth, he spent the next decade winning some of the championship’s most sensational contests to achieve his dream, becoming the first ever British UFC world champion in 2016.

From his boyhood years learning to fight in the gyms of Lancashire to his most shocking clashes in the cage, in Quitters Never Win Bisping tells the raw and unfiltered story behind his legendary career for the first time, including his greatest wins, his fiercest rivals and the harrowing injury that forced him into retirement. As audacious, entertaining and as candid as the man himself, it’s a backstage pass to one of the world’s most extreme sports and an unbridled account of what it really takes to become a champion, from sleeping in his own car to reaching the summit of the world’s fastest growing sport.

Loved the book, hated the narration

Wished it was Bisping who read the book but he did say on his podcast why he was unable to do it. I really wish he could sit down one day and narrate his own book because the narration on this title is an absolute travesty. I couldn't wait to delete this book from my library after listening because the reading was just so bad yet Bisping's story itself was candid and emotive. Do better by your won book, Bisping!

Winners never quit.

This is an honest, entertaining book and a typically British tale of triumph through adversity. I’ve been listening to the BYM podcast since its inception and thought I’d heard all his anecdotes but this gives another perspective on his life and career. In parts it feels like you’re getting the inside scoop on the MMA world.

My only criticism of the audio version is of the narrator.... he drove me mad! His mispronunciation of fighter names, weights, dates, TUF, RVCA and even Ditto’s name were all irritating enough but his attempts at accents were even worse!

I don’t understand why Bisping didn’t narrate this himself. As someone who now makes his living from commentating and podcasting, he has a funny, fluent and natural style of speaking and had he done it himself, it would have made this a much more engaging listen.

Best MMA book by far

Absolutely phenomenal book loved it,, by far the best mma book out there, unfortunately i didn't like the narration what so ever, I could have done with out the bad accents and constant pauses of sentences that required no pause, Also not entirely sure if the narrator knows much about MMA as throughout the book would get simple terms wrong and miss pronounce fighters names, that being said i still loved the book and could listen to it again Bisping was always one of my favourites!!

Amazing

Bisping is a pioneer and this is the first half of what I am sure will be an amazing life story. Hope I am around to see the next half... legend.
