(We predict Bisping will mysteriously get injured training for this one and will bow out of the fight.)
“Where are you running to? I’d give [Vitor] the number one spot [in the line-up of guys wanting to fight me] easily,” he wrote. “I’m challenging him … I want him. It’s up to you, Dana White and Joe Silva.”
Belfort quickly accepted and it seemed both fighters had their next fight.
“Let’s do it, brother. I accept it. He’s a great athlete, a great champion, and it would be a pleasure to fight him. It’d be a highly anticipated fight, very important for the sport. Whatever Dana says, I’ll do,” Belfort Tweeted. “I never chose opponents and I won’t do it now. But he made the challenge and I’m accepting it. I just don’t wanna wait for the UFC Rio to come back, I wanna fight first.”
Apparently Vitor thinks that beating up Michael Bisping is a much more important than a rematch with “The Axe Murdererer,” whom he knocked out in the UFC’s last show in Brazil back in 1998. Having watched Bisping land an illegal knee on opponent Jorge Rivera prior to winning his UFC 127 bout via TKO before proceeding to spit at “El Conquistador’s” corner, it seems that Vitor wants to teach the cocky Brit some fighting etiquette before fighting Silva again.
“On my way to the airport going back to Vegas I am looking forward to fight Bisping on a May card,” Belfort wrote Sunday. “I need to fight soon. I want to get busy. I hope to fight in May before UFC Rio because I would love to not lose the rhythm. I [would] really like to fight Bisping next.”
We know you hate our website, but speaking as fans, we would really love to see this fight. Please make it hapen.
