It is no secret that former UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Vitor Belfort aren’t on the best of terms with each other.
Belfort recently suffered a second round knockout loss to former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Lyoto Machida in his final fight at UFC 224, a loss to Bisping was overjoyed to see.
“It’s very satisfying to see him lose if I’m honest,” Bisping said on Believe You Me. “I don’t care for the guy. I think he’s built a career off being a cheat. The amount of insane steroids that he’s done over his life, over his career, is evident to see. I mean you go back and look at him in his early career, the guy was insanely jacked. When we fought he was insanely jacked, and now you look at him and he looks like a f**king beat up old man, and he’s getting knocked out like so and he’s performing like so. When he was juiced out of his mind, [he was] just f**king tearing through everybody.”
Bisping and Belfort met once inside of the Octagon, with Belfort picking up a second round TKO win at UFC On FX 7 in January of 2013.
One thing the British slugger blames Belfort for is the permanent eye damage he suffered during their first and only meeting.
“He has the hypocrisy to go out and talk about being a good person and this and that,” Bisping said. “The guy’s a cheat, the guy has no honor. I would have loved to have been the person to do that, but it’s kind of still enjoyable to see him get what he deserves because he’s gone out and done that to many people and caused injuries. He f**ked up my eyeball, he’s the one to blame for that, so yeah. God bless Machida. Job well done.”
The former middleweight champion has also teased that his next fight will most likely be his last, but that bout hasn’t been announced as of yet.
