You saw the pic from earlier today, now see the video. These two are ready to bang, bro.


Shit just got real at the UFC on FX 7 press conference, which featured a physical altercation between main event headiners Michael Bisping vs. Vitor Belfort. "The Phenom" put fist to chin (see a still shot here) and "The Count" responded by knocking it away.


Then the pair began shouting and had to be separated, and the only man there to prevent an all-out war was UFC Managing Director of International Development Marshall Zelaznik, filling in for the equilibrium-challenged Dana White, who just had his ears glued back together in Los Angeles.

Bisping vents on Twitter:

Vitor just chinned me at the press conference. He touched my face so I pushed it away and he put it back a little aggressively, then he started shouting,... who's the hooligan now eh? Lol I literally just laughed at him. As it was funny to see him lose his cool like that. ..... Feeling the pressure Vitor?

Don't forget, we still have to get through tomorrow's weigh in staredown, so this thing isn't over, not by a long shot.
