Behind the Scenes of Vitor Belfort's preparations for UFC 133Posted on July 6, 2011, 03:59 AM by Anton Gurevich
MMA legend Vitor Belfort will look to bounce back from defeat against Anderson Silva at UFC 126, in a fight against Yoshihiro Akiyama on the main card of UFC 133, which will take place at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It will be Vitor Belfort's second fight as 185'er in the UFC, as the encounter against "The Spider" Silva marked his debut in that weight class.
Belfort is currently 19-9 in his MMA career, with notable victories over Matt Lindland, Rich Franklin, Randy Couture, Heath Herring, Wanderlei Silva and Gilbert Yvel. As for Akiyama, despite being on a two-fight losing streak (Bisping and Leben), the Japanese superstar earned Fight of the Night Bonus in each and every one of his fights inside the Octagon (3).
