Starszy brat Bispinga. Lance Corporal Konrad Bisping, of Clitheroe, suffered devastating injuries and was lucky to survive when Private Grant Kenyon struck him in the head with an Army-issue pickaxe during a military exercise in January 2003. The attack put an end to a promising career in the Army for L/Cpl Bisping, who was a 26-year-old father-of-two at the time of the attack. He was hit from behind with the chisel point of the pickaxe, which was embedded in his skull. The pickaxe attack caused serious damage to the optic nerve and has left Mr Bisping 95% blind. He suffered significant memory loss and has had to relearn many everyday tasks, including writing. He also takes medication to control fits and is unlikely to ever work again.
