Vitor Belfort on Jones:

“We all make mistakes and nobody has the right to judge anybody. But God sees what is in our hearts and the thing is, like the bible says, whatever is in your heart is what your mouth and your attitude will speak. Actions speak louder than words,” Belfort said.

He also offered the slightly more cryptic - in fact, downright zen -advice when asked whether Jones was correct to recently refuse to cooperate with the UFC when they wanted him to fight Chael Sonnen on short notice. “Lions walk with lions… you cannot make an eagle walk with a chicken,” Belfort said when asked whether Jones should adopt a more compliant attitude.

Belfort also leaves on the following note: "I am not a diva, I am a legend. I am a legend. Thats why I took this fight"

He faces Jones on September 22 in Canada; the match was made after Dan Henderson pulled out of a September 1 fight with Jones because of a knee injury. Jones refused to accept Chael Sonnen as a replacement and so UFC 151 was scrapped completely. The September 22 event was to be UFC 152 but has now been retitled and is the new UFC 151.

He threw in some trash talk about Sonnen to boot.

No he didn't, he called Sonnen the Eagle and Jones the Chicken.

I agree with Slapshot, I read it as him calling Sonnen the Chicken.

What I would do is kick bones in the nut sack right at the start as hard as possible, then when hasnt recovered after the 5 minutes go bum rush him with his straight blast style boxing punches.

for some reason, it sounds better when it's Vitor saying stuff like that, than with Jones.
