It’s clear that Chris Weidman isn’t a fan of Vitor Belfort.
The middleweight champion has been dogging on his next opponent for the past few weeks, and taking shots at Belfort’s past drug use.
At Monday’s “The Time Is Now” press conference, Weidman once again reiterated his feelings ahead of the February 28 match-up at UFC 184.
“He’s trying to take my belt,” Weidman said. “He’s been caught cheating and I’m not going to let a cheating juicehead take my belt.”
The American added that he didn’t want to sound like a broken record, but that Belfort’s track record speaks for itself.
“I don’t want to victimize him for his whole career,” Weidman said. “I don’t want to take everything away he’s ever accomplished. But if you look at him in some of his fights, it’s kind of crazy like, what human being looks like that naturally? You just kind of go into your own logic and figure it out on your own.”
