Vitor Belfort Confirms That Forrest Griffin Turned Down Bout With Him | UFC NEWS

“I met with Forrest and he told me that he volunteered for a list of six names and mine was the first. He said he would face any of them except me. It’s good to have this kind of recognition. I am here to serve the company. My weight, my category, are the medium. I am adaptable. But I do not have much time left in my career and I want to have great challenges, be in whichever weight it will be. I can make great fights and don’t run from anybody, I’ll be always ready.”

    like you were ready to Bones… you were afraid as a little baby alone in the market.

  2. Big Show says:

    like you were ready against Jones!!! scared like a little baby girl in the market..

  3. Ollie says:

    Scared to fight Jones?
    Took the fight on short notice when nobody else would take it. And fought with a broken hand.

    @ big show. Ur an idiot. Dana went to six other fighters to fight jones and they said NO and vitor stepped up when no one else would. At least he tried when no one else would. So he wasnt scared u idiot. Get ur facts straight.

  5. Dante says:

    Anybody who steps up and is ready to fight anyone at any time, especially in multiple weight classes, gets such a +1 from me, and deserves the respect of any and everyone, straight up. Whether you like the fighter, their personality, their style, their record, or whatever, to be willing to throw down with anyone makes you a stud, and respect is owed up front. Props to the Belforts of this sport.
