Chael Sonnen was asked just minutes into the post-fight show on Fuel TV about his thoughts on Vitor Belfort’s call-out of him following his win over Michael Bisping Saturday night at UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Bisping.
“One thing I want to make really clear: You’ve been telling the world you want to meet Jesus, I will gladly arrange that travel,” Sonnen said. “Vitor, I accept. Don’t make any mistake. You called me out twice now, and I accept.”
Sonnen added that Belfort has made threats towards a fight while he is signed to meet Jon Jones in April for the UFC light heavyweight title.
Belfort’s comments did not necessarily reflect a challenge towards Sonnen. Instead, he called for himself to be a replacement for Sonnen and meet Jones for the belt.
