UFC Middleweights Vitor Belfort and Michael Bisping got into a little bit of jostling and jawing back and forth at the stare down following today's UFC on FX 7 press conference in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

UFC Middleweights Michael Bisping and Vitor Belfort did a stare down for the cameras following today's UFC on FX 7: Belfort vs. Bisping press conference in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Belfort put his fist on Bisping's shoulder and put it back there after Bisping pushed it away. Pointing and jawing ensued from both men as they were separated by UFC officials.

Meanwhile former UFC Middleweight contender Chael Sonnen had some things to say to MMA Fighting's Dave Meltzer about the bout:

"I tease and make fun of Vitor a lot, because someone needs to point out what a fraud and a phony this guy is, but everyone knows he's one of the most dangerous fighters in the world.

"Vitor is a faker, he pretends to be someone he isn't. Bisping fights off hating the other guy, and he's clearly developing dislike for Vitor. He needs to keep that up, because that's when he fights at his best."

Following the stare down, Michael Bisping had some colorful words for the assembled press regarding Vitor Belfort, Jesus, hooligans, roid rage, TRT, elevated levels, shrunken testicles and penises:
