[VIDEO] Chael Sonnen “Will Gladly Arrange” for Vitor Belfort to Meet Jesus

Let’s make two things clear from the beginning: Vitor Belfort is an amazing fighter, and an equally terrible trash talker. He demonstrated both of these things on Saturday night, with both his brilliant finish of Michael Bisping and his callout of Jon Jones immediately afterwards.

Of course, Jon Jones is a little busy at the moment, getting ready for Chael Sonnen and all. Belfort addresses this by asking Dana White to “Take that clown away” so he could have his rematch with Jones instead of having Bones fight Sonnen in the spring.

No one is here to say that Belfort can’t beat Sonnen in the cage – especially at light-heavyweight – but “The Phenom” doesn’t exactly live up to his nickname when it comes to trash talking. Even though I wouldn’t count Belfort’s post-fight interview as a callout of Chael Sonnen, the clown comment definitely left a sour taste in his mouth. Sonnen wasted no time responding to Belfort’s comments, using his commentary gig on the post-event FUEL TV broadcast to issue the following statements:

“Well listen, let me be really clear and speak directly to you, Vitor. You’ve been telling the world that you want to meet Jesus, and I will gladly arrange that travel. But first I’m going to get rid of Jon Jones, but you are next,” said Sonnen. He acknowledged that he was impressed with Vitor’s performance in the cage, but made it clear that Vitor “is next.”

I hate to spoil the fun, but I highly doubt Belfort is next for Sonnen if he actually defeats Jon Jones (the winner of Gustafsson vs. Mousasi comes to mind). In reality, this fight makes much more sense if Sonnen were to lose.

When it comes to Belfort vs. Sonnen and Belfort vs. Jones II, both matchups seem unlikely to occur in the near future, but who are we to not play make-believe? Which fight would you look forward to more, and who wins it?

Vitor vs jones 2 sounds more entertaining than mousasi Gustaffson winner vitor vs sonnen could suprise a few people sonnen"s style is vitors weakness in the past but sonnens sub def isn't the greatest and no doubt who wins on the feet

Chanel will make a fight vigor hates.
Jbj? I thought he made the same mistake shad did. Acted tentative when he should have been the predator. Beating jones requires not fear bones. Otherwise you play to his length.

I still don't fully understand y he wants to fight jones again, I think he's got a better shot at silva then jones. I think him vs hector would be very intresting

well we all know chaels decision win over bisping was pretty sketchy. a lot of people thought bisping won that fight. and chael even said himself he thought he lost.

and vitor beat bisping pretty soundly so i wouldn't see things going any differently against sonnen. probably another KO victory for Vitor. i don't think sonnen could sit on top of him. vitors strong, and if vitor can armbar jon jones, he can definitely submit sonnen off his back, sonnen has shown weak submission defense in the past.

i don't really see any way sonnen beats belfort. the only middleweight i see beating vitor is anderson. and vitor could fight jon jones 5 times and not win, that rematch doesn't make sense.

Anyone who knows mma knows styles make fights, i love Vitor but his take down defense is garbo, revert back to JBJ fight and you'll agree, chael waste know time in getting the fight to the ground. He wont beat Chael.

Lance juiced to level the playing field, Bisping should have done the same TRT= Exciting Fights

Sonnen vs. Belfort winner gets a one year "Get Out of Jail Free" pass for piss tests.

Yeah of course vitor wants a rematch since he has the legal juice now. Isnt it ironic the only fighters to KO bisping also cheat both on trt.

Sonnen vs Belfort for the Juiced Title
So much TRT it'd be splashed all over the face of Rogan and Goldie during the fight, a new form of Bukacke?
(bet I've spelt that wrong!)

Neither. Belfort vs Lombard. Now that will make Jesus appear. Even he wouldn't want to miss that fight.
