Eight years have passed since the fight between Vitor Belfort and Michael Bisping. The Brazilian celebrated with a brutal knockout in the second round, and Bisping suffered a severe right eye injury that still haunts him.
The Englishman has never been a fan of Belfort, who has often had doping problems throughout his career and has used TRT therapy (a therapy that compensates for testosterone deficiency). Vitor Belfort will perform in a boxing match on Saturday night, and on the other side of the ring will stand the legendary Evander Holyfield, who turns 59 in just over a month.
Michael Bisping commented on the match in the latest episode of his "Believe You Me" podcast, and it's clear who the retired English MMA fighter is rooting for. '' I hope Evander fuc*s him up. That's all I'm going to say, I'm not going to go into the technical analysis of the match.
Only God knows what Vitor did."
However, Bisping is aware that Vettori is an excellent fighter and stated his advantages, but of course, the boxing skills of the great fighter Holyfield should not be neglected.
"We know he has fast hands, good boxing, and can deliver a good kick. Evander Holyfield is a great guy. I really hope he beats Belfort. That would give me great pleasure." After a long time since their fight, Bisping still believes that Vettori was doped and that is the reason for his victory.
Just such a thing made him cheer for Holyfield who looks great in his 59th year as well "I don’t care what you say, he was on doping and honestly beat me. When people have beaten me in the past, I didn’t resent them, I wish them all the best.
However, Belfort is s*it and I don't care, I hope Evander will beat him up, '' said Bisping, who obviously can't stop thinking of Vitor Belfort. "Phenom" was originally supposed to fight Oscar De La Hoya, but "Golden Boy" had to cancel his performance because he contracted the coronavirus.
Evander Holyfield jumped on the "short notice" and the fight had to be moved from California to Florida because the California Athletic Commission did not agree to sanction a match in which almost 59-year-old Holyfield, who had not competed in professional boxing matches for ten years, would play.
Still, the legendary boxer is reportedly in training for months and appears to be in good physical shape at the moment.
