Bisping vs Vitor official

Vitor Belfort very well may be fighting Michael Bisping next.

 

But for now, the Brazilian fighter says reports that the two have been booked to meet each other are just based on a rumor.

 

"I don't have anything confirmed about fighting Bisping," Belfort stated on his Twitter account. "It's all rumors. When I know about it will let you guys know."

 

This past month at UFC 152 in Toronto, Belfort (21-10 MMA, 10-6 UFC) moved up from middleweight to light heavyweight for the first time in nearly six years and challenged champion Jon Jones. But despite giving Jones an early scare with an armbar that was tight enough to leave the champ injured and on the shelf till April, Belfort eventually suffered a fourth-round loss.

 

The defeat was just the second in nine fights for Belfort. Jones snapped his two-fight win streak, which included stoppages of Yoshihiro Akiyama and Anthony Johnson. His other loss in that stretch came in a middleweight title fight against Anderson Silva at UFC 126, where he was stopped by a Silva front kick to the face.

 

Bisping (23-4 MMA, 13-4 UFC) has been asking for a shot at Silva, himself, in recent weeks. At UFC 152, the Brit beat Brian Stann by unanimous decision to get back in the win column after a close decision loss to Chael Sonnen in January.

 

With wins in five of his past six fights, Bisping believes a crack at Silva would be more than fair. But if Silva, who just beat Stephan Bonnar two weeks ago at light heavyweight, is going to sit back and wait for a potential superfight with welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre, Bisping will be in need of a fight. Belfort may fit the bill.

 

"I think 185 pounds is the most exciting division in the UFC right now," Bisping told MMAjunkie.com (http://www.mmajunkie.com) in a recent interview. "It certainly has the best champion, and it certainly has the most challengers to the belt. There's no shortage of contenders. There's no shortage of exciting fights for me at 185. I'm privileged to be a part of it."

 

Whether one of those contenders proves to be Belfort remains to be seen, and Bisping responded on Twitter in a similar fashion as Belfort while asking a fan where he heard that the two were fighting.

I think Bisping will win a UD

The standup is going to be very close despite what most think. Bisping's boxing is actually better as far as pure boxing’s concerned. Vitor has the punching power and a BJJ advantage though. Bisping will mix in TD's and his annoying jab clearly winning the rounds by outpointing and out maneuvering Belfort with his cardio.

 

5 rounds: 49-46 Bisping

3 rounds: 30-28 Bisping
