The last time I saw Vitor Belfort, security denied him access backstage at the opening round of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand-Prix. There was no verbal altercation, Vitor just waited until Ray Sefo met him at the gate and eventually they let him in. Something tells me that if Chael Sonnen were placed in that same scenario, the phrase ‘do you know who I am?’ would emerge, followed by a few mentions on how he’s the ‘fastest white Republican in MMA.’ The security would eventually be forced to let him in due to the intangible injuries they would receive from a Sonnen verbal lashing. In MMA media, we call that ‘getting Sonnen’d.’
Vitor Belfort appeared on Inside MMA this weekend to discuss why he pulled out of his fight against Cung Le, but also mentioned that he could sell a fight with Chael Sonnen. As far as requiring assistance to sell an event, Chael Sonnen has all aspects covered. The guy could sell energy drinks to a group of mitochondria. Regardless, check out the video of Belfort’s appearance on Inside MMA.
