Read on to know all about Michael Bisping’s wife, Rebecca Bisping and more about their unfortunate series of events in Hawaii.

People go on vacations to relax, but it was exactly the opposite for the Bisping family! The UFC champ, along with his wife and kids, headed to Hawaii for an adventurous vacation. Well, they got just that and some! Rebecca Bisping and Michael Bisping share three kids, and they are a family who loves to travel. Find out all you need to know about Rebecca Bisping in our bit on the UFC champ’s wife.

What Happened in Hawaii?

While Michael Bisping was on vacation in Hawaii with his wife and kids, their belongings were stolen from their rental car while the family was visiting a waterfall. They decided not waste the day by returning the car right away, so continued driving their damaged rental car. But then, while parked in a valet lot, Bisping’s running shoes were also stolen from the vehicle, as the back window was already smashed in. And as if that wasn’t enough bad luck for one vacation, the family faced more problems while the Bipsings spent time with MMA fighter Kendall Grove and his family. While paddle boarding, Bisping and his daughter Ellie ran into some trouble when the wind started picking up.

Bisping abandoned his paddle board in an attempt to pull his daughter Ellie to shore. Bisping felt they were making no progress as they continued to drift further away from shore and the two other women they were with, were also having trouble. Finally, a rescue boat showed up, but the two women and little Ellie were the only ones who could fit on it. Bisping insisted the girls get in, and he would swim back alone.

“Me being a macho d–khead, I go ‘yeah yeah yeah I’m fine, I’ll swim back,’ because I assume there’s no room for me. So they all disappear, go off in the distance and I’m thinking ‘I don’t f—-ng believe this, me and my ego, rather than just say ‘I need help also,’ I’m going to drown now,” recounted Bisping in an interview with MMA Fighting

Eventually, the lifeguards came back for him, and he was able to recount the ordeal with some humor on his podcast.
