Belfort: Sonnen ‘relieved’ not to fight me

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Vitor Belfort was one of many guys who called out Chael Sonnen after Sonnen defeated Mauricio Rua. Sonnen said in the media he would be happy to take a fight with Belfort, however Belfort believes Sonnen was more than likely relived when the fight wasn’t made:

“He was really relieved that the UFC didn’t give him to me,” Belfort said. “He was like ‘I’m glad I don’t have to fight Vitor.’ We have friends in common and one time he was on his camp and (Sonnen) said ‘one of the guys I’d never like to fight is Vitor Belfort.’ I’m cool, man. He’s around, I’m around. One day he’ll have to face me. It’ll be a great fight. One day. Who knows?”
