Former UFC champ Vitor Belfort appears in a revealing video from UFC.com 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?
