    Default Constantinos Philippou wants a piece of Vitor Belfort -- just not in Brazil

    http://www.mmamania.com/2013/7/16/45...ort-brazil-mma

    And Constantinos Philippou is looking to make UFC matchmaker Joe Silva's job a little easier.

    "Belfort sounds good to me," said the Keith Trimble-trained striker. "NOT in Brazil!"

    The Brazilian has come under fire from fans and media alike for his testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). Not necessarily because he's undergoing the controversial treatment, like several other notable fighters on the ZUFFA roster, but because he's had the luxury of competing in his home country and away from the watchful eyes of stateside athletic commissions.

    Belfort hasn't thrown hands in the Untied States since knocking out Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 133 back in Aug. 2011.
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    ViTRTor would win. Has the skill, experience, speed and power advantage.

    Stranger upsets have occurred though.

    Vitor will get the win if he faces Philippou.. But I think Constantinos missed the memo, Vitor ONLY fights in Brazil for this title run.

    Huge step up for Philippou. Don't think he has the speed, grappling, or diversity of attacks to hang with Vitor, especially the Vitor of late.

    Maybe he's hoping a Nevada-approved Vitor looks like Munoz pre-camp?

    Has he actually said that? I'm sure UFC would be willing to accommodate him seeing as how he's a pretty huge draw in Brazil, but if he's really only willing to fight there, that would be pretty lame of him.

    Cat was being sardonic.
