Vitor Belfort Turns Down Tim Kennedy Fight, Says Only Middleweight If For Title

Vitor Belfort is standing his ground.

After impressive wins over Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold already this year, Belfort is only going to take a middleweight bout if it is for the title.

Recently, Tim Kennedy stated that he would be facing “The Phenom” in Brazil, likely in October. Belfort’s wife and manager, though, told that he would not be taking the fight.

Joana Prado stated that Belfort would take any bout, from “Tim Kennedy to Roy Nelson,” but only at catch-weights.

“Vitor wants to fight, but in his category only if the title fight,” she added.
