London, Dec 19 (ANI): Michael Bisping, an Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter, has crushed rivals such as Daniel Craig, David Beckham and Lewis Hamilton to be named ”Coolest British Man of the Year”.
The champion cage fighter came out top in a poll of the 100 Coolest British Men of the Year by Zoo magazine.
Around 50,000 people took part in the voting, and Bisping admits he is over the moon to scoop the prize ahead of so many big names.
“I am totally shocked, but honoured to be voted the coolest man in the UK by Zoo readers,” the Telegraph quoted him, as saying.
F1 world champ Lewis Hamilton came second while Noel Gallagher landed the third spot.
Jason Statham stood fourth and Daniel Craig rounded off the top five.
Editor of Zoo magazine Ben Todd said: “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,” Todd added.
