Belfort may be coming off a rebound loss to light heavyweight champ Jon Jones, but it was a near win in a higher weight class. Prior to the loss, “The Phenom,” was seen taking out top middleweights Anthony Johnson and Yoshihiro Akiyama. He may have been stamped with a front leg kick by current champ Anderson Silva, but Belfort will likely be back in contention with one or two more wins.
Following the win, Belfort made a request to the UFC boss for a rematch against Jon Jones.
“Let me fight Jon Jones. Dana you need to kick that clown out. Take him away. I need that rematch”
