Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping and mixed martial arts legend Vitor Belfort have not been on the best of terms ever since “The Phenom” earned a brutal knockout victory over the England native. With that in mind, Bisping has come forward with some heated words for his fellow former title holder.
Belfort suffered a brutal knockout loss to Lyoto Machida back at UFC 224, with Belfort announcing his retirement from the sport directly after. Speaking on his podcast Believe You Me, Michael Bisping revealed his thoughts on the recent defeat.
“It’s very satisfying to see him lose if I’m honest. I don’t care for the guy. I think he’s built a career off being a cheat. The amount of insane steroids over his life, over his career, is evident to see. I mean you go back and look at his early career, the guy was insanely jacked. When we fought he was insanely jacked, and now you look at him and he looks like a fucking beat up old man. And he’s getting knocked out like so and performing like so.
“When he was juiced out of his mind, just fucking tearing through everybody and then he has the hypocrisy to go out and talk about being a good person and this and that. The guy’s a cheat, the guy has no honor. I would love to have been the person to do that, but it’s kind of still enjoyable to see him get what he deserves because he’s gone out and done that too many a people and caused injuries. He fucked up my eyeball, he’s the one to blame for that, so yeah. God bless Machida, job well done.”
