Belfort vs Sonnen

Just a few days ago Vitor gave an interview to the brazilian media and when asked about Sonnen he said Sonnen needs to be ignored whenever running his mouth. He said Sonnen dosen't KO anybody and therefore tries to get attention somewhere else than the cage. He remained respectful towards Sonnen, but did recall that Sonnen has doped and money-laundred, and therefore "...his character speaks for itself". Despite Vitor's best efforts, it was clear that Vitor would love to shut Chael's mouth.

Now, a few days later, Vitor just called out Sonnen on his facebook, saying he hopes Sonnen wins his next fight so that he can "get" him in December. He also called for the fans to ask Dana for that fight.

PLEASE DANA, MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!

Re: Belfort vs Sonnen

Belfort has just escalated his pitch to fight Sonnen by posting on his facebook:

"Hey Chael, if you couldn't see Nate's hands touch your face, what do you think is going to happen when we square off?"

Please Chael, survive Stann so you can face another brazilian, run your mouth, and finally get KOed!

Re: Belfort vs Sonnen

I would like to see Brian Stann versus Michael Bisping. That would be a good matchup because you have a guy who likes to stay technical and move away, and another guy who tends to keep moving forward aggressively and has good KO power. Come to think of it, I like Vitor vs Bisping too for the same reason. It's fun to watch because it is like a ballet dance with knockouts.

Pot - Kettle

I really hope Vitor didn't say that, Vitor was doping long before Sonnen was.
