Will The Phenom accept the challenge of ‘The Dreamcatcher’

The 38-year-old veteran MMA fighter Vitor Belfort faced a major setback at the co-main event fight at UFC 187 last week. "The Phenom" Belfort lost to the current Middleweight champion Chris Weidman via a technical knockout in just under three minutes. So Belfort took on Instagram to apologize to his fans and promised that he’ll come back strong. Here’s what he wrote:

"I am always very happy, but I confess that I am still upset with my performance at UFC 187. I was going very well. I'd like to thank all of my family, friends, team, sponsors and fans for all the love and support. I love you all, but now I need to relax and be with my wife and kids. I will be back in full strength! I apologize to my Brazilian people and everyone around the world who is part of my time for not bringing the victory. It is great to have all of you with me here! I ask that God may bless every single one of you who cry and share laughs with me. See you soon!"
