Hold the phone on the Michael Bisping-Vitor Belfort fight for now.
That's the word from UFC president, who confirmed with FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight" on Tuesday that the fight "is not a done deal."
The fight has been seriously talked about as a potential main event for a Jan. 19 card in Brazil. It would not headline UFC 156, which has also been reported, because UFC 156 is slated for Feb. 2 in Las Vegas. That means the Bisping-Belfort fight, if it happens, could air on free television.
Bisping (23-4) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Brian Stann at UFC 152 in September, while Belfort (21-10) lost to Jon Jones via submission in a light heavyweight title fight in the main event of the same card.
