It appears that Michael Bisping has yet to forgive Vitor Belfort in the aftermath of their Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fight in Jan. 2013.

Belfort defeated Bisping via head kick knockout in round two of their main event fight in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The kick left Bisping with a detached retina that permanently damaged his eyesight (see it here). “The Phenom” tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone a few fights later.

“I hope Evander (Holyfield) beats the f—k out of him,” Bisping said on his Believe You Me podcast (h/t Middleeasy). “That’s all I’m going to say, I’m not going to go into a technical breakdown of it. God knows what Vitor has been doing. We knew he had good boxing, we knew he had fast hands, we knew he could pack a punch.

“Evander Holyfield is a big dude… I f—king hope [he beats Belfort],” he continued. “I would take great pleasure in that. I don’t care what you say, he was on juice and he beat me fair and square. When people beat me in the past, I don’t harbor a grudge, I wish them all the best… He’s just a piece of s—t. I don’t give a f—k…. I hope Evander batters him.”
