UFC middleweight Vitor Belfort usually plays the “good guy”, remaining quiet in regards to opponents even in the face of trash-talk. However, Belfort let loose on Chael Sonnen shortly after beating Michael Bisping at UFC on FX 7, calling him a number of names and challenging him for his shot at light heavyweight champ Jon Jones.
Sonnen was part of Fuel TV’s broadcast team last night covering the event and gave Belfort an answer during the evening’s coverage.
“Let be really clear and speak directly to you, Vitor. You’ve been telling the world you want to meet Jesus, and I’ll gladly arrange that travel. But first, I’m going to get rid of Jon Jones, but you are next.
Let me be clear, Vitor – I accept. Don’t make any mistake about that. You’ve called me out twice now. Once after I signed a contract to fight Anderson, and once when you know I was busy with Jon Jones, but I’m letting you know I accept.”
“I’m really confused as to what’s going on. I don’t know if he knows we’re not in the same weight class. I don’t know if he knows he’s not the champion. I keep hearing him say champion vs. champion. He keeps saying to come move out of the way. I would never tell someone to move out of the way but I’d damn sure knock them out of the way. Vitor, that’s one thing you’re not going to be able to do.”
