UFC quick quote: 'Clown' Chael Sonnen responds to Vitor Belfort; vows to arrange a date with Jesus

UFC light heavyweight No. 1 contender Chael Sonnen was on the panel for the UFC on FX 7 post-fight show on FUEL TV and gave and emphatic reply to Vitor Belfort calling him a "clown" in his post-fight interview with Jon Anik following his knockout of Michael Bisping in the main event from Sao Paulo, Brazil.

"Let me be real clear and speak direct with you Vitor: you've been telling the world that you'd like to meet Jesus. I'd be glad to arrange that travel. But, first, I'm going to get rid of Jon Jones. But, you are next. Let me be clear: Vitor, I accept. Don't make any mistake about that. You have called me out twice now, once after I signed a contract to fight Anderson Silva and once when you know I was busy with Jon Jones. I accept."

-- Following his thunderous head kick knockout of Michael Bisping in the main event of UFC on FX 7 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Vitor Belfort called out UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and in the process asked the UFC to remove the "clown" No. 1 contender Chael Sonnen from his scheduled UFC 159 title fight against "Bones". In predictable fashion, Sonnen was quick to reply to Belfort, saying he would gladly shut the mouth of "The Phenom," but only after he takes out Jones on April 27, 2013.
