Alan Belcher has become vocal recently about wanting a fight with UFC legend and middleweight contender Vitor Belfort. A recent Twitter war between the two may have sparked a tentative booking for UFC 153 in Rio.
Belcher first hinted at the bout with a cryptic tweet.
“My next fight will be the biggest of my career! I may be taking a trip down south, very south. #UFC #belcher4champ“.
That Tweet was followed by a more pointed one.
“I will fight anyone.although I want to fight someone who will challenge me!I want to fight @vitorbelfort in his home country in October #UFC“
Vitor fired back with an acceptance of the challenge.
“#belcher lets make this fight #ufcrio in oct 13″
There is no official announcement, but this exchange leads many to believe a bout between the two is indeed on the table. Whether or not it would be the main event remains to be seen.
Belcher posted another Tweet almost confirming it,
“@vitorbelfort I will be prepared..much respect”Tags: "bj Penn", Alan Belcher, featured, mma, MMA NEWS, ufc, UFC 153, ufc news, Vitor Belfort
