Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort: The energy of the fans motivates me

Former UFC champ Vitor Belfort appears in a revealing video from prior to his January 19th bout with Michael Bisping. He believes that words are powerful, but when the Octagon door is closed shut, your skills are all you have.

Belfort also touches on his respect for his fans and training partners. His love for fighting comes through in his philosophy, and it appears he and his opponent couldn’t be further polar opposites, at least on the surface. Will he stop Bisping’s trek for a bout with Anderson Silva?

    Too bad the energy of the fans can't make you 10 years younger.

    This fight should not go the distance……
    If it does….that will be a weak fight…the only way it wont is that these guys need to look like JDS face vs Cain….
