Callum Bisping has some big shoes to fill, but it looks like he's interested in at least giving it a try. Callum is the eldest son of UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping, who is set to smash all kinds of records if he beats Dan Henderson this weekend.
Callum took to Reddit this week to share his thoughts on his dad, and to answer fan questions. When asked if he planned to follow in his dad's footsteps he said, "I'll probably give it a shot."
Callum is off to the right start; he's currently on his high school wrestling team, and according to some recent Instagram snaps, he's doing pretty well.
He's also been seen training along side his famous dad.
We all know Michael Bisping is one of the kings of trash talking, and it looks like his son may also have that skill down pat. When faced with the ever present internet trolls, Callum knew exactly what to say.
When a hater compared him to CM Punk
When asked if he tries on the belt when his dad is away
On his dad's hairstyle... (Yes, someone asked about it)
On being the kid of someone famous
Let's not forget that Callum is his own person, and even if he does decide to enter the MMA community as a professional someday, I'm sure he'll do it his own way, with some help from his dad.
The younger Bisping could also eventually join the ranks of Ryan Couture, A.J. McKee, and Kevin "Baby Slice" Ferguson Jr. as second generation mixed martial artists.
We're all looking forward to seeing Callum in the cage someday, but for the time being, you can watch his dad attempt to defend his middleweight title this weekend at UFC 204, when he faces Dan Henderson for the second time in his career.
