The incident was reported in the East Maui area of Kailua on Friday, Aug. 4, and was discovered after Bisping and his family returned from a hike at the area often referred to as the “Bamboo Forest.”

Stolen during the incident were Bisping’s wallet, his wife’s bag, and all of their clothes that were in it, according to a post on his Instagram account.  “The police were great,” Bisping wrote,  “They came out very quickly, dusted for fingerprints and we went on our way, back to the hotel, all five of us, covered in mud and almost naked.”

Bisping called it a “Great day, apart from” the break-in and theft.


Bisping faces Georges St-Pierre at Madison Square Garden in NYC as part of UFC 217 on November 4, 2017, for Bisping’s 185 pound title.  Bisping made the declaration earlier this week on Aug. 2, 2017.

The fight is one of a few combat sports super-fights projected for the future, which include Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Aug. 26 in a professional boxing bout, and the rumored potential match-up between Jon Jones vs Brock Lesnar in the UFC’s heavyweight division.

The 38-year-old mixed martial artist from Manchester England has a 31-7-0 record.
