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? 

A huge fan of the sport since 1995, I love writing all aspects of the fight game. As Chief Editor of LowKick MMA, I strive to stay on the cutting edge of all things MMA related.

      Bisping is going to destroy this washed up bum. Superior cardio and boxing, easy decision win for Bisping.

    We hear this all the time but you can see it's obvious with Vitor, he feeds off the crowd big time

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

    Everytime I hear vitor Belfort speak, I feel I am in church listening to a catholic priest.

    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….
