Michael Bisping has his hands full filming the new movie, My Name is Lenny. That and training for his first ever UFC title defense, in his home town... no big deal.

Today, the first photos of Bisping in costume were posted. First by none other than former UFC fighter, Cathal Pendred, who also appears to have a role in the flick.

Second, shortly after when Bisping posted a snap to his own Instagram account.

Bisping's wife Rebecca also posted this shot from the set.

Bisping came off a movie set to win the strap at UFC 199, so perhaps he's hoping he can repeat the process again.

He's filming in England now, and is rumored to be training between filming.

The current middleweight champion is starring in the biopic as boxer, Roy Shaw, the nemesis to the title character Lenny McLean.

Bisping is set to make his first title defense on October 8, in his hometown of Manchester, England when he faces Dan Henderson. Tickets for the bout reportedly sold out in six minutes.
