Vitor Befort Still Calling for a Shot at Jon Jones

Vitor Belfort failed in his bid to capture the UFC middleweight title from Anderson Silva in early 2011. He also failed to topple UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones when he stepped up for a last-minute shot at the champ last year.

He has since gone out and dethroned top UFC middleweight contender Michael Bisping.

The UFC is telling him he is still a ways off from another shot at Silva, so after a near-miss armbar against Jones, Belfort called for another shot at Jones after his win over Belfort.

Most people wrote it off as the heat of the moment, but Belfort recently met with a group of reporters, including, and reiterated his declaration that he wants Jon Jones.
