Vitor Belfort: "Chael Sonnen didn't deserve shot against Jon Jones."

Thought this was interesting. Especially considering that both of them are basically in the same position. Both are top ranked middleweights coming off losses to Anderson Silva. I don't see how Belfort deserves the shot and Sonnen didn't.

Belfort has been winning fight since he lost. Chael hasn't even competed since. Thats a pretty big diference. Oh and vitor has competed at heavier weights before too...

Vitor was on the receiving end of one of the most embarrassing knockouts when he fought Anderson.

 

I wouldn't say it was an embarrassing knock out. Anderson's front kick to the chin was one of the best knock outs of all time for MMA.

 

My favorite knock out of all time is still when Anderson knocked out Okami from his back. Now THAT was embarrassing for Yushin.

Vitor really has the fastest hands out of anyone Jones has ever fought. Jones leaves his chin out there Vitor could put him to sleep as long as he doesnt stand around flat footed like a ****ing zombie like hes famous for doing.

 

Does he deserve it more than Chael? Meh, no. Chael is 5 rounds to 2 on Anderson. Vitor got brutalized im embarrassing fashion with 0 success

LOL he beat someone who is 0-4 in his last 4 fights and an over weight fool in no way should he get a shot

they are big names, and in a sport about $$$$ rankings don't mean ****

 

 

a big name is the same thing as a top tier fighter in mma now a days

 

 

i.e. chael sonnen

Anthony Johnson is a big name in the sport and the fact that Vitor beat a much heavier opponent warrants recognition. Johnson was far from being a "****". I'm sure you used that word loosely.

would you STFU. There is NO such thing as 5 to 2 rounds for Chael. It's 0-2 fights for Chael.

this is weird... it kinda makes me not want to see Vitor win for being a butthurt Chael-trolled Brazilian sheep .... which sucks because I really want Jones to be unconcious blowing snot bubbles ...

 

which is compounded by the fact that I didn't even like Sonnen until he stepped up to try and save 151

hes the phenom he automatically deserves any title shot.

 

 

But lets break it down, he has a win over johnson after his title shot loss which was a finish, hes fought at heavier weights before, he was a previous LHW champ, Hes a top 5 MW, he stepped up when no one else but Chael would, Chael sucks. He has a high amount of both submission and KO victories.

 

why chael is less deserving. His last loss was a title shot, he rarely finishes fights, he poses no threat to jones at all in that if he cant get him down they might as well stop the fight, hes never been a UFC champion before, He already blew 2 title shots very recently. He isnt an exciting fighter.

Chael had his shot at becoming a champion 2 times now he failed miserably the last time and looked terrible. Giving him another title shot straight after that is just STUPID!

 

Vitor may not deserve the title shot either but he has done more than Chael has and he isn't coming of a loss in a title fight.

I really have grown to dislike Vitor, which is a shame.

 

All of his tedious pontificating about god and Jesus and other such nonsense, combined with the fact the guy is equally delirious about most other things, means I cannot respect him at all intellectually.

 

He may have some ok wins under his belt, but let's be honest, he has never lived up to the hype of the 19 yo who knocked out two part-time brawlers in one night.

 

At least not during this particular stint in the UFC.

Vitor sure knows something about not deserving title shots

Vitor Belfort has no right to say that Chael did or didn't deserve a title shot because UFC 151 had nothing to do with who deserved to fight Jon Jones. Chael Sonnen was the ONLY FIGHTER who would take the fight on short notice!! Vitor and even Anderson Silva only said they would fight after the event was already cancelled. Chael was the only one who stepped up.

I'll say it again, Jon Jones shouldn't even be allowed to fight at UFC 152, no one wants to see the "businessman" fight an easy fight. Vitor Belfort is like a 100 to 1 underdog and Jones will plow right through him. Jones has two options: 1. He can resign from the UFC because no one wants to see a Champion who only cares about the money. or 2. Ask him to fight Junior Dos Santos to prove to the fans that he really is a Champion fighter and not just a greedy businessman.

You just activated a nuclear warhead' date=' my friend.[/quote']

If you're not quoting Pulp Fiction, you're just wasting our time.....

 

Back on subject, yes, you can make an argument that Vitor doesn't deserve a title shot. But you absolutely cannot make a sensible argument about how Chael deserves it more. There are other guys that maybe deserve a shot more than Vitor, but none of them are as big of a name, and the ones that are either won't take the shot on short notice or are injured.

 

Vitor is the most deserving, able, and willing at the present time.

Seriously, if Vitor is 100 to 1 underdog, then Fail Sonnen has to be at least 10000000000000 to 1 underdog. At least Vitor has fast hands with KO power. Fail has nothing other than his Wrestling, against a much bigger, stronger Wrestler.

 

And..., to touch on the first part of you senseless rambling masquerading as a stupid post, Vitor has more right to fight for a title than Fail does. Fail just got ****ing embarrassed, very very badly. Vitor has 2 wins, albeit over less than stellar competition, but 2 wins over anybody is much better than the embarrassment of Fail's last fight.

As I said before, no one deserves a title shot. Jones shouldn't be fighting at all against Belfort . Yes, one could easily argue that Belfort has a better "chance" of winning over Chael Sonnen, but the fact remains is that Belfort is already a 10 to 1 underdog. It's like the UFC is rewarding Jon "businessman" Jones with a super easy fight for being a coward and ruining UFC 151(the first one). And yes, myself and the whole world would love to see those fast KO powered hands of Belfort whoop Jones, but this is highly unlikely.

Vitor won his last fight against a natural HW.
