Belfort Calls For Bisping Then Title Shot, Criticises Shogun, Not Afraid Of Jones - via SPORTV.COM (translated by Fighters Only)

“I guess Wanderlei will be able to fight in October but I only want that my next bout that accredits me to dispute the belt. I don’t know, maybe Michael Bisping. I was only defeated once recently, by Anderson Silva, and all my wins were very convincing.

“I don’t pick fights. There are people who say ‘If they give me this guy, I would rather be fired’! I was even talking about it with Dana White. How can anybody choose their fight? Obviously some managers force things for their athletes go up in the career but I want to make a fight that interests the public. I already am in the end of my career, so I want to do one more fight and go for the belt,” he said.

“Joe Rogan spoke with me that it makes all sense, unless Hector Lombard wins very well over Tim Boetsch. And Lorenzo Fertitta told me that I would dispute the title if I had beat Wanderlei.”

“I don’t know how long I will stay in this division. I wanted to do more two or three fights. If my body will no longer permit this big weight cutting, I will go up (to 205-lbs). I am not afraid of Jon Jones or somebody else... Its not for me to choose my opponents.”

How hillarious would it be if he got outpointed by Bisping and they aligned him to fight Wandy again?!

He may not be afraid of Jones but he would get murdered by him!!! He'd be lucky to last 2 rounds with Bones!!!

The only reason I was interested in Belfort/Silva 2 was because I expected a highlight reel knockout. Now that Wandy lost to Franklin, maybe Bisping is the best choice. It's relevant for the title picture and could still end in a satisfying knockout.

It would be a good fight. I think Bisping has improved for his KO loss to Hendo and he handled himself well enough against Sonnen to make me think that he would give Vitor a good fight.

While he did look good against Sonnen Vitor has a completly different style from Chael Im not sure the take away from that fight leaves me much to gauge for a fight with Vitor

In the UFC Vitor beat Johnson, Sexyama and Franklin....hardly worthy of a title shot. I am not sure why they pitted him against Anderson Silva in the first place. Vitor is on one of the lower rungs of the MW ladder. Why is he even talking about this stuff? I think he needs 2 or 3 wins against guys that matter...then maybe he can talk about tile shots. Retire now Vitor before the guys at the top of the heap beat you into retirement.

First of all the interview goes something like this... I pick my opponents, except I dont, except I do... And the UFC puts up with me and Shogun doing so because we're white brazilian royalty...

Secondly Shitsping never had a great performance against Chael, he just exposed how physically weak Chaels performances are when he doesnt take his "theraputic" ass injections before fights.

Come on guys, Vitor and Shogun aren't the only guys asking for certain fights or turning fights down. Hendo and Chuck also come to mind. Even Ken Shamrock begged till he got to fight Tori again. More recently Rory MacDonald called out B.J. but since it was a fight that we wanted to see we didn't start blasting Rory for picking his opponent. Remember, its Joe Silva who puts these fights together and Dana has input. If your gonna point fingers, point in the matchmakers direction for giving these guys what they want
