Belfort criticises Shogun: "How can anybody choose their own fight?"

Belfort takes his countryman to task for not wanting to fight glover, even though Shogun has stated that the claims he said he would rather be cut from the UFC are not true.

belfort does talk a lot for a guy who drops out of so many fights himself

Quote:
Belfort also raised the subject of fighters picking and choosing opponents in the hope of obtaining an easier match. Specifically he laid into Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua, who according to UFC president Dana White had said he would “rather be cut from the UFC than fight Glover Teixeira” (Rua denies saying this).

“I don’t pick fights. There are people who say ‘If they give me this guy, I would rather be fired’! I was even talking about it with Dana White. How can anybody choose their fight? Obviously some managers force things for their athletes go up in the career but I want to make a fight that interests the public. I already am in the end of my career, so I want to do one more fight and go for the belt,” he said.

“Joe Rogan spoke with me that it makes all sense, unless Hector Lombard wins very well over Tim Boetsch. And Lorenzo Fertitta told me that I would dispute the title if I had beat Wanderlei.”
Belfort calls for Bisping then title shot, criticises Shogun, not afraid of Jones

Wow. Call me crazy but I'd really like to see these two fight. Belfort v. Rua would be awesome.

So Shogun knees Belfort in the chest and then gets knocked out with some classic Blitz.



Sorry, my bad, I mean he taps to strikes.

To be fair, Belfort ends up getting injured often, not saying he won't fight someone.
