UFC 184 Vitor Belfort Declined interim title fight against Lyoto Machida

Belfort’s Jiu-Jitsu coach Gilbert “Durinho” Burns told  Tatame.com.br

“We don’t think that is fair with Vitor a fight with a guy with a such different style and with nothing to lose. He has been training for more than six months to fight a orthodox wrestler. Now he would have less than a month to prepare for a southpaw karateka. I was the first one to say no.”

“I think that a fight against Yoel Romero, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, Luke Rockhold or Mark Munoz wouldn’t affect the training so much but against Machida it would be all different.”
