UFC on FX 7 Video Highlights: Belfort 'Sonnen Is a Clown, I Want Jon Jones'

The general consensus seemed to be that Vitor Belfort was fighting for nothing more than pride and a paycheck when he faced Michael Bisping in the main event of UFC on FX 7.  When he high kicked his way to a second-round TKO victory, emotion may have got the best of him when he took to the microphone during his post-fight interview and called for a fight against UFC light heavyweight Jon Jones while also ripping into Jones' next opponent, Chael Sonnen.

For those of you who thought Belfort would change his tune once the adrenalin of the victory wore off, well, you were partially right; he was a bit more reserved, but his tune did not change when it came to Sonnen.

When speaking to Heidi Androl, Belfort reiterated the fact that he felt Sonnen to be a clown and that he should step out of the way so that Belfort could get the fight with Jones.

Belfort is barking up the wrong tree thinking that the UFC will move Sonnen out of the UFC 159 main event for any reason other than injury, but the talk very well may lead to a future bout between Belfort and Sonnen, and that fight, whether it takes place at light heavyweight or middleweight, is fine by me.
