'For some crazy reason, Vitor believe you should have to fight against Chris Weidman Anderson Silva or now, "says the president of the Ultimate
After knocking out Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold, Vitor Belfort expected to win the chance to compete in the logo of the UFC middleweight belt, but was frustrated by marking the rematch between Chris Weidman, the new champion, Anderson Silva. The organization offered him a duel for the 84kg category against American Tim Kennedy for the last quarter of the year in Brazil, but was refused by the team belfort.
The American press called impressions Dana White on the refusal for a chat after the "UFC: Johnson Moraga x", and the words of the President of Ultimate were not the most pleasant:
- I do not know. Did not know that. Who knows ... For some crazy reason, Vitor believe you should have to fight against Chris Weidman or Anderson Silva now. He is beside himself.
Vitor wife and manager, Joana Prado said that the husband accepts only fight again in the middleweight division if title. But he is willing to return to the octagon before having that chance, provided it is in a fight for the light heavyweight (93kg), heavy (up to 120kg) or a combined weight.
If the UFC does not mark a duel under conditioned by Belfort, a fighter Rio will have to wait until early next year to return to the Octagon. The rematch between Weidman and Anderson is scheduled for Dec. 28 in Las Vegas, USA.
