Upon hearing the news, Toney wasted no time in replying to the Brazilian knockout artist. "Tell Vitor Belfort let's make it happen. I like that because he ain't no scared little bitch. He wants to come to my world and I'm more than willing to welcome him into my world," Toney would inform FightHype.com moments ago.
Belfort, who at one point was considered to have the fastest hands in MMA, is on a 5-fight winning streak, including a 1st round knockout over Rich Franklin in his last outing. Of course, that bout took place a year ago, when Belfort made his return to the Octagon after nearly 4 years during UFC 103. After that fight, Belfort was originally set to take on UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, but a shoulder injury would sideline the former champion, forcing him to sit out and rehab all this time. Belfort's comeback will take place in November at UFC 122, when he takes on Yushin Okami in a title eliminator, but he welcomes an opportunity to also test his boxing skills against Toney.
