WATCH: Michael Bisping proves himself a class above with top gesture to die-hard fans

Don't be fooled by his trash talk or his weigh-in shenanigans, Michael Bisping is actually a lovely guy.

Anybody who just watches the regular pre-fight antics of 'The Count' would be led to believe that he's something of an arsehole but, in fact, he's anything but and simply knows the bad blood that needs to be stirred up to get in his opponent's head while also drumming up interest from fans so that they'll tune in to watch a fight between two men who seemingly don't like each other.

But anybody who's spent any time with the UFC middleweight champion will tell you that he's a class act, in particular when it comes to looking after his fans.

Two supporters found that out first hand at the weekend after they booked a room in the hotel at which Bisping was staying ahead of his first title defence in Manchester.

Without tickets to UFC 204, the pair just wanted the chance to meet their hero before he took to the Octagon against Dan Henderson.

But Bisping clearly got wind of the lads' presence as he invited them up to his room so that he could shake their hands and offer them two tickets to the event.

It left them literally speechless and nobody in the Manchester Arena would have enjoyed watching Bisping's hand being raised in the wee hours of the morning than these two.

He's definitely one of the sport's good guys.
