Michael Bisping has continued his attack on Vitor Belfort, branding him a "f*****g cheat" for his use of testosterone replacement therapy.

Bisping was beaten by Belfort at UFC on FX 7 last month, after which it was revealed Belfort had been given a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) to bolster his testosterone levels using TRT.

In the aftermath of his defeat Bisping said that the better man had won, but he is still smarting that his rival was given clearance to use TRT.

"He's been busted for that (steroid use) in the past, and now he's allowed to put steroids into his a**e hole," Bisping said during a question and answer session prior to UFC on FUEL TV 7. "What can I say? He's a f*****g cheat."

The defeat cost Bisping a shot at middleweight champion Anderson Silva and he will have to rebuild his UFC career, starting with a clash with Alan Belcher in April, but he does fancy another crack at Belfort.

"I do want a rematch with the guy," Bisping said.
