Vitor Belfort Not Fighting Michael Bisping, Says Belfort

Rumors of a middlweight match up pitting Vitor Belfort and Michael Bisping against each other started recently.

However, Belfort has quieted those talks via Twitter.

“I did not sign anything yet that’s what came out on the internet,” he posted. “I will fight with Bisping (if offered). Still have not decided on my next fight. It’s all rumor.”

Belfort recently took a fight with Jon Jones for the light heavyweight title, falling via submission. He had an armbar locked in on Jones in the first round, but was unable to get the submission.

Bisping is 4-1 in his last five fights, including a victory over Brian Stann on the same night as the Belfort-Jones fight.

Reports had the Belfort-Bisping contest taking place in early 2013.
