Vitor Belfort: Didn't want title shot this early


Vitor Belfort talked about his history with Anderson Silva (training partners) and how he hopes that Anderson understands that this is a professional sport and there is nothing personal. He also mentioned how he didn't want an early title shot but the UFC insisted on it (weird thing to say at this point. Lorenzo didn''t look too much happy with that comment). He said it's good to be back in Abu Dhabi and he hopes to put on a show with Anderson in April.

This makes me somewhat less inclined to want this matchup, will we be seeing the best vitor possible given the circumstances come fight time? I'd think the best thing for business from the ufc's point of view would be a competitive/exciting fight. I don't know if that will come about with two seemingly hesitant participants but we'll see.

I didn't have much interest in a Dan Henderson rematch.Silva would probably win even more easily than he did the first time.

 Dan shoulda got the shot promised to him imo. However I do wanna see Vitor v Anderson they just shoulda let Dan fight him first and had Vitor fight another contender in the mean time.
