Vitor Belfort is coming back from an injury, but he wants to fight at UFC 141 and he’s hoping to get the winner of Chael Sonnen and Brian Stann.

MMAWeekly.com caught up with Belfort at the UFC Fan Expo where he says that his leg is healed up and he’ll be back in training this Monday and wants to fight on the year end card.

As far as who he wants to fight, Belfort wants the winner of the upcoming fight between Brian Stann and Chael Sonnen because he wants to get back into the title picture.

Belfort has some very interesting things to say in particular to UFC middleweight Chael Sonnen, who has made talking about Brazil almost like a second job.

Looking at his career record, Belfort isn’t overly impressed with what Sonnen has been able to accomplish, outside of running his mouth.

“Chael Sonnen is trying to talk all of that to promote because he’s a boring fighter,” said Belfort. “He doesn’t knock anybody out. What’s the last knockout he has on his career? What’s the last submission he has on his career? He’s talking about guys, he’s bragging about Minotauro, Minotoro, and he even started talking about (me), about the last 8 guys I fought. Look at him, the guys that he fought, which championship fight he won.

“What he’s accomplished is just talking and promoting fights.”

If there was a line in the sand, Vitor Belfort just drew it and he’s ready to face Sonnen next or Marine veteran Brian Stann.

Belfort will be present at UFC 136 on Saturday night to hopefully challenge the winner.

    Vitor, you ned to keep silent…

    would you like to be boring and beat your opponent for 95% of the fight or an exciting opponent and get knocked out in the first 2min of the fight. you choose….

    you need to be busy staying healthy in your camp and showing up for your commitments in the octagon.

    gm256 your kind of a joke with a statement like that. you obviously are not a fighter or even train. nobody and I mean nobody that actually trains to fight wants to be a boring lay and prayer with a load of W that are decisions…when you are a true fighter you live by these words “never leave it in the judges hands.” I would rather lose taking it to my challenger than have to wear the shame of just laying on a man and holding him down just to NOT get hit and have a W on the record. Belfort is exciting AND he’s got heart talent and knock out power. the dude has nothing to be ashamed of and everything to gain when he steps into the cage ready to KNOCK OUT the competition. Have a great day sir.
