Man, Daniel Radcliffe is going to be pissed. According to the readers of Britain’s Zoo Magazine, the UFC’s Michael Bisping is the U.K.’s "coolest" man of the year. Upon hearing the good news, Bisping described himself as “shocked.”
You know who else is shocked? Bear Gryllis. That bad-ass survivalist dude from the Discovery Channel. He finished seventh in the voting. Seventh!!!! And he drank elephant poop! Hell, Noel Gallagher from Oasis was third. Sup with that, Brtiain? You guys feeling okay?
When it came to analyzing the meaning of these results, Zoo’s editor chalked it up to the “growing influence that UFC is having on young men in Britain,” as well as a changing economic and cultural climate.
Other notables on the list:
4. Jason Statham (that guy)
5. Daniel Craig (James Bond)
12. Christian Bale (effing Batman, yo)
24. Ricky Gervais (this dude)
33. Simon Cowell (just stop)
36. Morissey (I thought you said “coolest?”)
60. Paul McCartney (he’s still British?)
86. Sacha Baron Cohen (if this isn’t cool, what is?)
“…[N]umber one, he’s got to get me to the ground, which I’d be interested to see if he could because I wouldn’t let him do any of that pulling guard bullshit that he does and number two, he’d have to keep me there and he’d have to do it before he got knocked out cause he might be good at Jiu-Jitsu but his stand-up is certainly suspect.”
Now there’s a fight I’d like to see.
