Belfort To Meet UFC Matchmaker, Hopes For Ortiz Rematch

The following is an excerpt from an article on Sherdog.com:

[Vitor] Belfort will meet UFC matchmaker Joe Silva on Wednesday, the Brazilian told Sherdog.com, and is specifically looking to avenge his last bout in the UFC, a split decision loss to Tito Ortiz.

“I want to rip his big head off,” said a re-motivated Belfort. “The last time I had a back problem, and he just laid on top of me with a broken nose bleeding all over me and I tired in the last round.”

But now the 30-year-old “Phenom” said he no longer has “a building” on his back, referring to a slew of personal issues, and has concentrated on improving his cardio.

He also explained that while other promotions, like EliteXC and M-1, have contacted him, he is more concerned with re-establishing his legacy in the UFC, beginning with Ortiz.

“I'm willing to fight him winner take all, the loser gets nothing,” Belfort said of the former UFC light heavyweight champion. “He's a millionaire, he doesn't need money — he has to have pride.”
