Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Vitor Belfort will be competing for the final time later this year and he requested a fight with former pro wrestler CM Punk.
UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping went off on Belfort for his requested final opponent.
“This is a sign of the p**sy that Vitor Belfort is. This is the sign of a p**sy that takes f**king steroids his entire career. If you take steroids, you are a f**king p**sy because you’re so mentally weak that you feel that you can’t go out there and fight these people on a level playing field because you’re gonna get your ass kicked. So you worry, and you look, and you look for shortcuts, and you look how you can cheat, and you think, ‘Oh I’m gonna take these steroids and they’re gonna build my muscle and make me recover better’ and all this type of stuff. And they do give you advantages. They give you physical and psychological advantages. But if you need those advantages then you are a coward, you’re a f**king p**sy, and you are a cheat, and the very fact that somebody would take steroids their entire career, then get their ass kicked, then call out CM Punk, I’m not surprised motherf**kers. It’s a simple as that and that just speaks volumes to the character and the level of a man that Vitor Belfort is. I wouldn’t f**king p*** on him if he was on fire,” Bisping said on Believe You Me.
Belfort has defeated Bisping in their lone meeting by third round knockout over four years ago. The British champion believes that his strong reaction was created by the seemingly absurd request by Belfort.
“If you put me in this environment and you tell me that former light heavyweight champion - former heavyweight champion - middleweight contender, longtime steroid abuser, cheat, fraud, wants to fight a one and fighter in the UFC that lost in the worst way possible, who is a 170 [pound] guy that’s never really done any kind of MMA training, you tell me that’s who Vitor wants to fight, of course you’re gonna get a strong reaction,” said Bisping.
Bisping is currently preparing to defend his belt against former UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre, the fight will be happening later this year.
