There’s been a lot of chatter about a possible rematch between Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva, two champions when it comes to worldwide MMA audience. However, this Monday Belfort used his Twitter account to call out a different opponent:
“I’m on my way to the airport to return to Las Vegas and I’m dying to fight (Michael) Bisping. I need to fight soon, I want to keep busy,” said @vitorbelfort.
Bisping won his latest outing, beating Jorge Rivera by knockout this Saturday at UFC 127. Known for his foul temper, he spared no effort in being offensive to his provocateur Rivera and team. He then begged forgiveness from the promotion’s president, Dana White.
“He’s among the top ten in the division,” adds Belfort.
Wand is still in the fighter’s plans, though. According to Belfort, the idea would be to fight Bisping as soon as possible to then have a rematch with Wanderlei at the August 27 UFC-Rio event in Brazil.
