Vitor Belfort Needed Stitches Days Before Facing Michael Bipsing

Former UFC champion Vitor Belfort was lucky Michael Bisping failed to connect to the area above his left eye during their fight last month in Brazil.

On his Twitter account Friday, Belfort posted a photo showing a doctor sewing up a cut on his face just 10 days prior to his match with Bisping. Belfort went on to defeat Bisping via second round TKO.

“This happen during a sparring session,” Belfort wrote, “20 stitches 10 days before the fight.”

Belfort is expected to face former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold later this year. Check out the cut in the picture below:
