UFC Tweet of the Day: Vitor Belfort says Chael Sonnen is relieved they won't be fighting

Chris Trotman

After Vitor Belfort's next UFC bout has been announced, the Phenom took to twitter to take shots at Chael Sonnen.

Shortly after the Vitor Belfort vs. Dan Henderson rematch was announced at UFC Tonight, it didn't take long for the Phenom to throw some jabs at Chael Sonnen, who is one of the panelists for the show. Belfort took to twitter to talk about it:

@sonnench u are very good actor. But u couldn't hide that u are very relief that u don't have to fight me. I know from a very close friend of yours that since I K.O YOUR coach Matt lindand your a very afraid to fight me. Don't be afraid to admit, and let my friend @kennyflorian talk. Only u talk

Belfort is of course referring to his 37-second knockout win over Lindland at the second (and final) Affliction event back in 2009.

Both fighters have called out each other in the past, with Belfort recently accusing Sonnen of running away from him for calling out Wanderlei. We're unlikely to see these guys scrap anytime soon, but I have to say, it will be interesting to see if Sonnen replies to this.
