Vitor Belfort Continues His Push To Face Chael Sonnen

Vitor Belfort isn’t giving up in his pursuit to face Chael Sonnen.

Belfort, who called for a match with the former contender over the weekend, again took to Twitter to make a plea to face Sonnen.

“I just read at the larger newspaper from Brazil that you are in both rankings (10th light heavyweight and ninth in middleweight)” he posted. “Since you are in a ‘GREAT’ position coming out of a win I still giving you an opportunity to fight with me.”

Immediately after he submitted Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, Sonnen asked to fight Wanderlei Silva in three months. However, upon hearing Belfort’s challenge, Sonnen said that match would work for him, as well.
