Result: Vitor Belfort def. Michael Bisping by TKO, 1:27 of Rd. 2
Belfort doesn't care about your plans, UFC.
At the end of the first round, Belfort landed a left high kick that rocked the British kickboxing champ, but he couldn't quite close the deal. He didn't make the same mistake twice, though.
Early in the second, Bisping lowered his hands and came forward, and the same kick immediately thundered home. Belfort finished off "The Count," and the UFC's middleweight title plans, with punches and hammerfists on the ground.
Oddly, in his post-fight interview with broadcaster Jon Anik, Belfort called for a rematch with light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and bashed current challenger Chael Sonnen, calling him a "clown" and telling him to "go home."
A Jones rematch seems unlikely for Belfort, but he may now be one fight away from a rematch with Anderson Silva.
