Bisping Called Belfort’s KO “Satisfying”
While many are sad to see the end of Vitor Belfort’s career, one man was happy to see him get knocked out in his final fight at UFC 224.
On his Believe You Me podcast, Michael Bisping was satisfied seeing Loyoto Machida’s devastating leg kick knockout of Belfort.
“It’s very satisfying to see him lose if I’m honest,” Bisping said.
“I don’t care for the guy. I think he’s built a career off being a cheat. The amount of insane steroids that he’s done over his life, over his career, is evident to see. I mean you go back and look at him in his early career, the guy was insanely jacked. When we fought he was insanely jacked, and now you look at him and he looks like a f**king beat up old man, and he’s getting knocked out like so and he’s performing like so. When he was juiced out of his mind, [he was] just f**king tearing through everybody.”
Bisping’s beef with the now-retired fighter goes back to their 2013 fight, where Belfort knocked out Bisping with a headkick. “The Count” has claimed that Befort came into the fight with an unfair advantage due to Belfort being on testosterone replacement therapy, which Belfort had a medical exemption for.
The bigger issue was the headkick that defeated him would detach Bisping’s retina and cause permanent damage to his eyesight, which he’s never forgiven Belfort for.
“He has the hypocrisy to go out and talk about being a good person and this and that,” Bisping said.
“The guy’s a cheat, the guy has no honor. I would have loved to have been the person to do that, but it’s kind of still enjoyable to see him get what he deserves because he’s gone out and done that to many people and caused injuries. He f**ked up my eyeball, he’s the one to blame for that, so yeah. God bless Machida. Job well done.”
