Report: Vitor refuses to fight Kennedy (or anyone) at 185 Pounds.
The UFC plans to schedule a fight between Vitor Belfort and American Tim Kennedy for the middleweight (84kg) went downhill. The wife and manager of Brazilian Joana Prado, who on Thursday received a call from Lorenzo Fertitta told Combate.com who refused the offer of the owner of the organization. Kennedy had already posted up on Twitter to come to Brazil to face Belfort. - It makes no sense Vitor, who is the number 1 ranking, fight number 2, number 6 or number 10 category. In his next fight in the middleweight division will be against the winner of Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva. If the UFC wants him to fight in any other category above average, we are available. Can be against anyone, Tim Kennedy, to Roy Nelson, but has to be in the 93kg division or weight married. Even in heavy fighting him. Vitor wants to fight, but in his category only if the title fight.
