Bisping: Belfort’s A Cheat Who Wins With Punches Behind The Head
Bisping: Belfort’s A Cheat Who Wins With Punches Behind The Head | UFC NEWS MMA News | Mixed Martial Arts | UFC News | BJPenn | MMA Fight | UFC Fights Wanderlei Silva: Vitor Belfort Needs to Finish Michael Bisping Within Two Rounds
I was disappointed Vitor Belfort started talking in tongues when asked about TRT recently. He had a little more to say on Monday when he was asked directly about my concerns that all his recent UFC fights were won by illegal punches to the back of the head. In between lengthy references to the New Testament, Belfort basically said he doesn’t care if he hits opponents behind the head. How he’s gotten away with this in his career is a mystery to me, and I hope we have a strong referee who has the balls to do something about it – if it happens – with thousands of Belfort supporters screaming in the stands. And of course it is down to me to make sure I’m not put in a position where he can unload these kinds of shots. Vitor has one or two rounds to beat me – or try to hit me behind the head – and then his gas tank will be empty and the fight will look like that Rocky vs. that dead cow.”
"It is a very well-matched fight. I think Belfort has all the tools to knock out Bisping in a two-round fight. If it goes three to five rounds, I think Bisping swallows Vitor. One of the things about Vitor is that he is very fast – he lands a lot of blows in succession, so he may get tired. And the Englishman talks a lot, but he also trains a lot, so he will be prepared," Silva said.
The former Pride champion recalled Belfort’s bout against Jon Jones at UFC 152; he believes his rival should place more of an emphasis on his speed, which he did not against the light heavyweight champion.
"Belfort gave only a sprint against Jones -- in the third round. That had to be given in the first round, then he would have won. He has to control the distance and try to win by knockout. But if the fight goes on, I think things will get better for Bisping," Silva said.
Silva also chimed in on the controversial duel for the light heavyweight title between Jones and Sonnen, which is expected to take place on April 27. Silva does not agree with those who consider the matchup meaningless.
"Whatever the boss [UFC President Dana White] says, I sign underneath. If he thinks this fight is fair, then I think he's absolutely right,” Silva said, laughing. “It was a fight I wanted to see; [but] Jones will swallow Sonnen. I spoke with Jones and told him that he can win the fight only with jabs, with one hand tied behind his back. The only person who can beat Jones today is Anderson [Silva].”
In regards to the dream showdown between “The Spider” and Jones, Mad Dog said he spoke with the American on the matter, but he would not say whether Jones would accept the superfight.
"He talked to me about Anderson, but I cannot say what, obviously,” joked Silva.

I was gonna say... but 4 of you already beat me to it lol.
lol, goddammit we were all thinking the same thing.
Call me crazy but I'd say a deliberate knee to the head of a downed opponent is worse than accidentally having a couple shots in the middle of a flurry stray to the back of the head when you're trying to finish someone.
When someone turns their head and they catch one on the back of the head it's not the fault of the person throwing the punch.

^IDK the back of the head is pretty vulnerable, especially with someone like Vitor.
They made Akiyama and Franklin both go out cold...the thing is they were both face down also and he just pounded right on the back of their head, he may not have exactly been trying to do it, but I don't think he was worried at all.
But the way Bisping cheated was just so blatant...

1. How did S=E not post this first?!?!
2. Bispings opinion on dirty fighting is about as relevant as marriage advice from OJ Simpson.
