Chael Sonnen Willing To Face Vitor Belfort At UFC 168 With Stipulation

Vitor Belfort doesn’t want to fight at middleweight unless the UFC title is on the line.

Belfort, who reportedly has turned down a fight with Tim Kennedy, is willing to compete at a catch-weight or even bigger; just not at 185 pounds and risk his contender spot.

However, according to a report on “UFC Tonight” Tuesday evening, Belfort’s wife and manager wants a meeting with Chael Sonnen.

As host of the show, Sonnen was given a chance to answer, and he accepted – with a stipulation.

Sonnen stated he would meet Belfort at UFC 168: Weidman vs. Silva 2 if it took place at middleweight. Currently, Sonnen is set to face Mauricio “Shogun” Rua next month at UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. Sonnen.

When he signed his new contract with the UFC, it stated Sonnen would return to middleweight – where he twice competed for the UFC title – after facing Rua.
