Vitor Belfort Says He Deserves a Rematch Against Jon Jones or Anderson Silva

February 4, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Vitor Belfort recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his desire to get a rematch with either Jon Jones or Anderson Silva. Check out the highlights:

On a rematch with Silva: “I deserve the rematch, so that’s the fight I’m looking for. If not him, I’m looking to get to be a contender of my division. Nobody made a statement with that, and I think the way I beat (Michael) Bisping takes me very close to the contender shot.”

On a potential fight with Luke Rockhold: “I’ll accept any fight, but I need to know where this fight is going to take me…I’ll be ready, and I have my people negotiating. But I want Jon Jones. I want his left arm.”

On #1 contenders being chosen by verbal feuds: “People are picking fights. I don’t agree with that. I believe in sport, you earn it…If I need to pick a fight, I will pick guys that have the title. People in the division that I can conquer. I’m not scared of anybody….If I’m in the 185 division, I beat the second guy, I earned that place. That’s how I think, but that’s not how it is.”
