Following his victory over Michael Bisping at UFC on FX 7, Vitor Belfort had some choice words for Chael Sonnen, calling him a “clown” and a “punk” while oddly enough requesting a Light-heavyweight title rematch with Jon Jones. When given the mic Vitor had the following to say:
"Take that punk Chael Sonnen, I don't even know what your name is, and get out," Belfort said right after the fight. "Dana, Lorenzo, kick him out. Let me fight Jon Jones. I need that rematch. Take that clown away. Go home. You did a reality show, go home. Let me fight the real champion. A champion against a champion - not that clown."
During the post-fight show on Fuel TV, while discussing the fight Sonnen had his opportunity to address Vitor and obviously took it:
"Let me 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, but 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."
While being interviewed by Heidi Androl after his win, Belfort had the following message for Chael Sonnen:
"He is a clown. Get out, get out of the way. You just got knocked out pretty badly by Anderson Silva, then you fight Jon Jones. You don't deserve it. Do the reality show. ... Let me fight. Real champion vs. real champion. I think you are a good athlete, but you need to go to the back of the line and let me fight the real champion in a rematch."
And as always Sonnen was the one with the final word.
"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."
