UFC's Michael Bisping wants rematch with 'f---ing cheat' Vitor Belfort

by Steven Marrocco and John Morgan on Feb 15, 2013 at 2:45 pm ET

LONDON Middleweight Michael Bisping doesn't have much time to dwell on his loss to Vitor Belfort at this past month's UFC on FX 7 event. He's already training to fight Alan Belcher at UFC 159 in April.

But during a during a Q&A in support of UFC on FUEL TV 7, which takes place Saturday at London's Wembley Arena, Bisping (23-5 MMA, 13-5 UFC) said it's a "touchy subject" to talk about Belfort and the permission he received to use testosterone-replacement therapy for the fight.

"He's been busted for that in the past, and now he's allowed to put steroids into his a--hole," Bisping said. "What can I say? He's a f---ing cheat. But I do want a rematch with the guy."

Bisping declined an interview with request with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) following the UFC's disclosure of Belfort's TRT exemption. He subsequently released a statement on his website taking responsibility for his loss despite his opposition to the use of prescribed testosterone.

Belfort, whom the UFC approved to undergo TRT prior to the bout, stopped Bisping in the second round of their headliner when he dropped the Brit with a head kick, which prompted the referee's intervention.

While Bisping's feelings on TRT haven't changed, he thinks the fight was stopped too early and wants another chance to beat "The Phenom."

"The referee stopped the fight," he said. "Fair play to him, congratulations. He was the better man on the night. But I was completely fine went I went down, and I think the referee stopped too soon, and I'd love a rematch someday."

But perhaps the loss stings a little bit more due to the circumstances around it. Had Bisping beat Belfort, he would have earned a title shot against middleweight champ Anderson Silva.

"There's probably like, 0.1 percent of the world that actually have low testosterone," Bisping said. "But for some reason, a s---load of fighters have low testosterone. I don't need testosterone. I'm a bad-tempered bastard in the best of times."

For now, they will walk separate paths. Belfort is scheduled to fight ex-Strikeforce champ Luke Rockhold at UFC on FOX 7. "The Phenom" believes he's made a strong case for a title shot at middleweight and light heavyweight, where he nearly submitted champ Jon Jones at UFC 152 before submitting himself in the fourth round.

Bisping, meanwhile, has decided he won't take a stand against the use of TRT, which remains one of the more controversial topics in MMA.

"That's the way it is," he said. "That's the way it's all set up. For me, I get my ass back in the gym, train my ass off and try and do what I can. I'm not going to stand there and debate the politics of it all."

I posted this in the Bisping doesn't care about Vitor's TRT use thread. With the LOLOLOL at the early stoppage.

I had just gained a single ounce of respect for the man, but he is quick to remind you what a major douche he is.

Someone should remind Bisping that kneeing downed opponents, grabbing cages, gouging eyes, and ball kicking are also considered cheating.

Someone should also tell him that the kick wasn't the last strike landed in the fight. Vitor was on top punching his face. But he might have dozed off during that part.

This is why he cracks me up!

Funny, he seemed to accept the loss and the stoppage until quite recently. If this "completely fine went I went down" is correct then he should of fukin moved instead of just laying there. But we all know its bullshit, he was rocked and frozen and not intelligently defending himself.

He must want to get stopped again. He did nothing in that fight that would make me think a rematch would go any other way.
