@sonnench I just read at the larger news paper from brasil that you are in both rankings( 10th light heavy weight," na repescagem correndo como um cavalo azarão" and 9th in my division) since you are in a "GREAT" position coming out of a win I still giving you an opportunity to fight with me.
After Belfort won over Luke Rockhold, he asked for a title shot rematch against Silva. Chris Weidman winning the belt and Silva's rematch in December ruined Belfort's plans. Then a possible fight between Belfort and Lyoto Machida evaporated, causing UFC president Dana White to laugh about Belfort's actions.
"I wanted Machida to fight Vitor Belfort, but Vitor Belfort is his own matchmaker, apparently," White said. "He wants to make his own fights."
Now Belfort wants to give Sonnen and opportunity for a fight. Sonnen has been focused on Wanderlei Silva, but this challenge from Belfort is intriguing. Is this a fight you want to see? Speak up on Facebook.
