Michael Bisping Respects Vitor Belfort but Expects a Beatdown at UFC on FX 7

UFC middleweight Michael Bisping understands Vitor Belfort is a dangerous opponent. After all, the 35-year old Brazilian come out with his hand raised in rumbles with a number of respected adversaries and owns 17 stoppages in his 21 total wins. However, Bisping doesn’t seem have a ton of respect for his UFC on FX 7 foe’s overall skill-set.

The outspoken Brit has questioned Belfort’s cardio on a number of occasions and is now going so far as to criticize the legendary competitor’s intestinal fortitude.

“I can go 5×5 standing on my head. I don’t think Vitor Belfort can do the same thing, and after round one, he’s gonna be a walking punching bag and it’s gonna be an easy night for ‘The Count.’”

“He has the body of the lion but the legs of a chicken and the heart of a chicken, which I’ll show.”

“I believe I can beat him. I believe I’m the better fighter.”
