Vitor Belfort: Leave Coward ‘Michael Bisping’ And His Lame Excuses In England

UFC has officially booked a Middleweight showdown between former Light Heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort and Lyoto Machida at UFC 224 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on May 12.

Earlier this year, Belfort was supposed to have his retirement fight at UFC St. Louis against Uriah Hall, who unfortunately suffered a bad weight cut and was removed from the bout for medical reasons, left Belfort without a dance partner. Belfort instantly pivoted, announced a desire to rematch with former middleweight champion Michael Bisping at UFC London in March. But Bisping turned down the invite.

“He’s a coward,” Belfort told MMA Junkie. “That Englishman is a coward. I’d never seen a coward Englishman before. He took a blow, got stunned, and he has his lame excuses, you know. Leave him with his arrogance over there in England.”

Belfort got back into the win column at UFC 212 this past summer by picking up a win over Nate Marquardt in a 185-pound affair. Before that, the longtime veteran had dropped three straight.

Vitor Belfort is calling it a career after UFC 224 against Machida.

Who do you think will come out on top between former champs?
