Boxinginsider.com: Will you give Randy Couture a rematch?
Vitor Belfort: For sure. Right now theyre talking with me about that. & My goal was to fight Couture. If I wineven Couture & because Couture went to Japan and challenged Pride to fight for the beltso he did all this promotion. So I think it would have been very good for the sport. I would like to get a chance [to fight against Pride champion, Wanderlei Silva] and also to give Randy a rematch. I think this would be awesome. I think all the fans would be very interested to see those fights.
Boxinginsider.com: What made Randy Couture come out on the Internet last weekend and start bashing you? Randy was saying that you werent going to step up for a rematch. I guess he was looking for an immediate rematch? Randy was saying that you werent stepping up and going to give him a rematch. He was pretty vocal about it.
Vitor Belfort: Yes, because Randy said he would have beaten me. I know for sure that Randy would have wanted Wanderlei. Thats his main goal. Giving him a rematch would be very, very welcome, but I have to look out for my career, not for his career. He wants a rematch very badly because he came off from two good wins and then he lost to me. I think hes frustrated right now. He wants the belt again. He deserves it, but I think he needs to understand that I am looking for the best for me right now. The best for Vitor is the [Pride] title, because if I beat Wanderlei, I will hold the title. I am looking for my best interests and the best interests for mixed martial arts. For sure my fight against Wanderlei will be a much, much bigger job than me and Randy Couture again.
