The heat between Vitor Belfort and Michael Bisping just will not go away, as the two had a Twitter exchange on Tuesday. Belfort defeated Bisping earlier this year, but word came out following the fight that he was granted a testosterone replacement exemption.
The exemption became an issue because Belfort had previously tested positive for steroids in Las Vegas. “The Phenom” started it off, posting, “Look Michael (Bisping) my kick on your head become a fever in Brasil.”
Bisping responded with, “you only fight where your allowed to cheat. Fight me in Vegas. Oh…you can’t because your not allowed to use your steroids.”
Many felt Bisping needed to remain focused on Alan Belcher, who he faces next month. “The Count” stated, “Hey I’m over that cheater. He just tweeted something about me so had to respond. All my attention (is) on Alan Belcher.”
Belfort returns to the Octagon in Brazil against former Strikeforce champion Luke Rockhold.
