Vitor Belfort responds to Sam Alvey after UFC-Mexico: He'll be first to get knocked out smiling


Vitor Belfort didn’t take long to accept Sam Alvey’s challenge to be the next stop on the “2017 Vengeance Tour.”

Following Alvey’s (31-9 MMA, 8-4 UFC) split-decision win over Rashad Evans at UFC Fight Night 114 on Saturday, “Smile’n” Sam called for a matchup with Belfort (26-13 MMA, 15-10 UFC). He said he wants to get revenge against everyone who has beaten his friend, mentor and training partner Dan Henderson – something “The Phenom” has done twice.

Belfort caught win of Alvey’s request for a future middleweight fight, and the Brazilian accepted with a threat (via Instagram):

Belfort, a former UFC light heavyweight champion who is coming off a unanimous decision win over Nate Marquardt at UFC 212 in February, mentioned Las Vegas as a possible destination for the matchup. The organization’s next stop in “Sin City,” is UFC 216, slated for Oct. 7 at T-Mobile Arena.
