Vitor Belfort was not pleased by Dana Whiteâs statements regarding Michael Bisping at the weekend. The Ultimate Fighting Championship president told the media after TUF 16 Finale that Michael Bisping is likely the next in line for the middleweight belt if he gets past âThe Phenomâ on January 19th 2013.
The president also said that he has no plan for Vitor if the Brazilian beats âThe Countâ. Vitor sent a straight message for White via Sportv.com.
âTell Dana White to find another contender. Bisping wonât get past me.â. When asked whether he feels passed over by the UFC since they are not saying Vitor will get the title shot with a win in SĂŁo Paulo, he was even more incisive.
âNo. I am focused on him (Michael Bisping), I donât think about anything else. Fortunately Dana White is not God to say who is going to win. If my father were my mother, I would have two mothers, so tell him to find another contender, thatâs it.â
Belfort also says he wonât charge the number one status if he is the winner in the bout versus the British fighter because he hasnât been getting the same treatment regarding the future of the division.
âI wonât charge anything. I will do my job. The future is made today. I have only this to say.â
