UFC on FX 7 results: Belfort TKO’s Bisping

The main-event of UFC on Fox 7 was one of the most exciting middleweight fights to start off 2013 as Vitor Belfort delivered a bone crushing headkick that dropped Bisping, followed by a fury of punches, forcing the referee to halt the action in the second-round.

There was plenty of hype leading into this fight, and many would say that Bisping would fight Anderson Silva next if he were to grab the victory over Belfort.  That was not the case, and the Brazilian issued a challenge to  Jon Jones and told UFC president Dana White to remove Chael Sonnen from that fight and let champion vs. champion square off in a rematch.   Belfort’s exact words were along the lines of “Remove that clown from being the #1 contender, hes a clown!”.

Sonnen was quick to respond to Belfort by issuing this statement immediately following the live broadcast: “Let me be real clear and speak direct with you Vitor: you’ve been telling the world that you’d like to meet Jesus. I’d be glad to arrange that travel. But, first, I’m going to get rid of Jon Jones. But, you are next. Let me be clear: Vitor, I accept. Don’t make any mistake about that. You have called me out twice now, once after I signed a contract to fight Anderson Silva and once when you know I was busy with Jon Jones. I accept.”
