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.
