Bisping, Belfort get physical before UFC bout

January 17, 2013, 4:09 PM

The pre-fight press conference for UFC on Sportsnet: Belfort vs. Bisping became heated when the two main event combatants got physical.

After nearly 45 minutes of answering questions from reporters in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the two squared off for a photo opportunity and Belfort put his fist up near Bisping’s face and the Brit didn’t appreciate it. He swatted the Brazilian’s hand away and said “don’t touch me.”

Watch five hours of live fights on Saturday as UFC on Sportsnet: Belfort vs. Bisping coverage begins with three hours of preliminary bouts on Sportsnet ONE starting at 6 p.m. ET / 3 p.m. PT, followed by the main card at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT

Bisping, who has been promised a title shot against Anderson Silva if he can defeat Belfort, did not appreciate his opponent’s action and shouted “I’ll (expletive) see you Saturday,” as the two were separated.

Bisping (23-4) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Brian Stann at UFC 152 in Toronto, while Belfort (21-10) is coming off a submission loss to Jon Jones at the same event.
