Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva fought at the first UFC in Brazil in 1998. Belfort destroyed Silva in less than two minutes. Despite having both fought under the Pride banner for most of the 2000's they have not crossed paths since. Now it appears they both want a sequel.
Wanderlei Silva started it by calling out Belfort.
Belfort responded to Tatame.com:
"Let's do it, brother. I accept it", Vitor said, praising the fighter he defeated by TKO in UFC Brazil, in 1998. "He's a great athlete, a great champion, and it would be a pleasure to fight him. It'd be a highly anticipated fight, very important for the sport.
"Whatever Dana (White) says I'll do, I never chose opponents and I won't do it now. But he made the challenge and I'm accepting it. I just don't wanna wait for the UFC Rio to come back, I wanna fight first", he added.
