Following Sam Alvey’s win over Rashad Evans this past weekend, “Smile’n” let it be known that he wants to fight Vitor Belfort next, and the legend’s already responded.
Alvey worked his way to a tightly contested, decision win over Evans at UFC Fight Night 114, which took place in Mexico City. After wards, Alvey told Belfort “you’re next”.
Well, since then, Belfort posted the following response on Instagram:
@smilensam let's fight in Vegas. You are gonna make history: You Will be the 1st man to get knockdown with a smile on the face @ufc Just send me the bout agreement // @smilensam vamos lutar em Vegas. Você vai fazer história: Você será o 1o homem a ser nocauteado com um sorriso no rosto @ufc pode mandar o contrato #mma #teambelfort #belfortteam #ufc
So, on paper, this is a fight that has the potential to be pretty entertaining. Both men come forward and have heavy left hands. Will it happen?
