Belfort unlikely to get rematch with Silva
Having won his last two bouts with devastating knockouts, Vitor Belfort recently campaigned on a Twitter for a bout with the winner of Saturday’s UFC 162 main event. However, the scenario is unlikely:
“The hard position that Vitor is in is when you talk about a rematch for him. (Silva) went out and kicks him in the face in the first 60 seconds for one of the most devastating knockouts of all time,” said UFC president Dana White following the UFC 162 pre-fight press conference on Thursday.
“So when you go back to Anderson Silva, who is in the twilight of his career, and you say to a guy like Anderson, what about Vitor? ‘I annihilated Vitor. I got other fights that I wanna fight.’ You talk about his legacy and his this and his that. Those are tough fights to make,” added White.
