Cosmo Alexandre Wants To Welcome Vitor Belfort To ONE
Fresh off a victory over one UFC vet, Cosmo Alexandre calls for a second one. This time, he calls for a bout with Vitor Belfort.
It took only 29 seconds for Alexandre to walk through Sage Northcutt. In doing so, he managed to essentially break Sage’s face. He spoke to BJPenn.com to discuss this victory, and the damage he caused.
“I messaged him already. As soon I heard about his surgery… it’s terrible. He was my opponent and not my enemy. I have a lot of respect for the kid and he has a good future. I wish him a speedy recovery. He has many good things going for him and I have no doubt he will be back stronger and wiser, and a much better athlete.”
This win could propel Alexandre to a ONE Welterweight Title shot. However, that is of little interest. Instead, he is looking to a bigger name opponent.
“I’m not interested in the belt right now,” he said. “Right now I want the big fights. I would love to welcome Vitor Belfort in his ONE Championship debut. also, I have three more fights in my contract and I want big fights, big challenges.
I just want to make big fights now. already have seven world titles, I already fought all the big names in Muay Thai and kickboxing. So for now, I just want the big names, and to make big money.
i can fight mixed martial arts, Muay Thai or Kickboxing. I can do it all, and I bring everything I have in the ring or cage. I am waiting just for the call.”
Vitor Belfort has not booked a fight since coming out of retirement, and signing with ONE. Perhaps it will end up being Cosmo Alexandre.
