Dana White Says Vitor Belfort Drives Him ‘Crazy


Quote:
Vitor Belfort has been in the news recently as he continues his streak of calling out fighters from all weight classes and recently turning down a fight with Tim Kennedy in favor of a hypothetical bout with Chael Sonnen.

UFC president Dana White has apparently had enough of Belfort’s antics as he recently stated at a press conference during the UFC’s world tour stop in Los Angeles. White stated that he was trying to put together a bout between Belfort and Rashad Evans, appeasing Belfort’s wish to fight at a higher weight class:

“Vitor doesn’t want [the Kennedy} fight,” said White. “So I said, okay, let’s do him and Rashad. He wants to fight at a heavier weight, let’s do him and Rashad. I haven’t heard back on that yet.”

He hasn’t heard a response yet.

As for Belfort’s request to take on Chael Sonnen, White stated that he was basically done dealing with Belfort:
“Vitor drives me crazy man. Lorenzo can deal with Vitor, not me.”

White passed the duties along to his partner Lorenzo Fertitta who will certainly have his hands full with Belfort. No word on whether a bout with Sonnen has even been considered as Sonnen faces Mauricio Rua on August 17th at the inaugural UFC on FOX Sports 1 event.
Good old Dana, stirring the pot. I always assumed Vitor was next in line after the Weidman/Machida fight.

Well vitor needs a fight. I dont get sitting on the shelf for so long? Weidman machida is july 5th. That means at very best belfort gets the title fight in october or november. More likely around the end of the year.

...I think by all means--- Vitor should get a crack at the winner of Weidman & Machida. He's clearly made the strongest argument for a title shot with his 3 in a row highlight KO's. His delay has been long enough. With no more TRT, Belfort has to prove something now. Vitor ought to just clam it, wait for the winner of Weidman & Machida then make a call out...

Do you think he wants a fight at a higher weight so if he loses it wont count against him at 185 and he can still get the title shot??
