Vitor Belfort Takes His Hairstyle To The Next Level Heading Into Chris Weidman Fight

Surging UFC middleweight title contender Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort has never been the most orthodox of fighters, often letting his strange views be known in public. That usually results in either him delighting his fans or providing fuel for his detractors.

There’s going to be a whole lot of both in the coming months as Belfort prepares to face UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman in the main event of May 24’s UFC 173 from Las Vegas.

And “The Phenom” is wasting no time in getting the ball rolling. Belfort posted a picture of his new hairstyle on his Instagram account, taking his previously seen Mohawk design to the next level:

Love him or hate him, you can’t deny that the hard-hitting Belfort is polarizing.

Much has been made about Belfort’s use of testosterone-replacement therapy (TRT), his testing, and he has even called for Weidman’s blood to be tested for performance-enhancing drugs just like his is.

The whole TRT thing has been done to death. Belfort will be applying for and may even be granted a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) for the therapy leading into UFC 173, but he’s one of the few to have measured success while using it.

Regardless of the reason, the 36-year-old “Phenom” looked in the best shape of his life in 2013. Now he finally has a chance to complete his mission of being champion once again.

Will that long awaited day come soon against Weidman?

    There is something so wrong with this guy. When he does interviews he sounds all hopped up on something probably roids making him crazy. If he was so religious hed know his low testosterone was Gods will to show with God alone someone could compete and win. That isn't a cross in his head. Hes praising a T for TRT

    Vitor went full retard with that haircut.

    Maybe he should check with Mark Munoz on what happened to the last guy who went to fight Weidman with a god awful haircut and something shaved into the back of his head.

    It works for me, man. He must have gone into the barbers and said, ‘give me the (converted) Ragnar Lothbrok.’

    In my eyes, Belfort can do no wrong and if you're a fan, then you accept him as is, warts and all. And in the same way that other fans accept, or choose to ignore, the flaws of their own favorite fighters.

    I’ll say this in defense of VB, it's not the worst hairstyle I’ve seen a fighter dawn. He’s in fight mode and this is no different than other fighters coloring their hair or (even) Hendricks growing his beard to take into a fight; something I don’t think he should be allowed to do, by the way.

    Anyway, go Ragnar Belfort.

    For the record, I don’t think Weidman can do any wrong either. :-)
