Chael Sonnen sure does a good job tending to his garden of opponents. It looks like he’s got a fresh beef growing there right now!
“Take that punk Chael Sonnen, I don’t even know what your name is, and get out,” Belfort said right after the fight. “Dana, Lorenzo, kick him out. Let me fight Jon Jones. I need that rematch. Take that clown away. Go home. You did a reality show, go home. Let me fight the real champion. A champion against a champion – not that clown.”
Sonnen fired back on the Fuel TV post-fight show.
“Let be really clear and speak directly to you, Vitor. You’ve been telling the world you want to meet Jesus, and I’ll gladly arrange that travel. But first, I’m going to get rid of Jon Jones, but you are next.
“Let me be clear,” Sonnen continued. “Vitor, I accept, but don’t make any mistake about that. You’ve called me out twice now. Once after I signed a contract to fight Anderson, and once when you know I was busy with Jon Jones, but I’m letting you know I accept.”
So he’s got Jon Jones and now Vitor Belfort lined up, and he’s even keeping twitter wars with Rampage Jackson going just in case the guy decides not to leave the UFC after his fight with Glover Teixiera. Three big money fights to keep him occupied through 2013. Who needs a matchmaker?
