Future UFC Hall of Famer Vitor Belfort, like most of us, has a few eccentricities. When he recently suggested that a suitable figure for his final fight might be CM Punk, the hardcore fanbase was not sure if serious.
UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping took Belfort on his word, and was not impressed. During his latest Believe You Me podcast, The Count said it was the type of p***y behavior he expects from a former PED user.
“This is a sign of the p***y that Vitor Belfort is,” explained Bisping, as transcribed by Jed Meshew for MMA Fighting. “This is the sign of a p***y that takes f***ing steroids his entire career. If you take steroids, you are a f***ing p***y 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***ing p***y, 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***ers. 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***ing piss on him if he was on fire.”
“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 done fighter in the UFC that lost in the worst way possible, who is a 170 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.”
