Wand: Everyone knows Belfort is psychologically weak

source: FightersOnly

“The war has started. I’ll catch you, understand bro? I’ll catch him because our first fight did not prove anything really; it was a technical error and also a lucky moment. He knocked me out quickly,” the former Pride FC champion told Sensei Sportv in Brazil.

“That loss is stuck in my throat and I will turn it over. I am a different fighter now and this time the one who is going to do the knocking out is me. I’ll beat him badly. I’m already preparing myself for this bout,

"I’m acting on his mindset. Everybody knows he is strong but is psychologically weak. Everybody knows he goes to bits before going in to fight, so I’m damaging his mind already.

 Lucky? Oh, you're right Vitor got lucky by punching Wand 30 times in like 7 seconds, and having to chase him across the cage to continue smashing his face. Lucky would be the exact word I would use to describe that for sure.

 Vitor is mentally weak. If Belfort can't finish Wanderlei early in the fight he will lose confidence and quit. Vitor doesnt have it anymore.

I love Wandy but he really needs to stop calling out these guys. Belfort and Sonnen, I'm sorry Wandy but those would be long fights for you. Sonnen will beat you into a pulp just like he did Anderson but you won't be able to pull off a miracle sub like he did. Belfort will pick his shots while you throw haymakers, and he will catch you and it will be lights out. Please don't do this to yourself. Go fight someone like Leben who can make for an exciting fight that you actually have a chance of winning.

Vitor would smash him without effort.......What's the technical error? Coming in straight forward, looping hooks, with no head movement hoping to catch his chin? Vanderlei still does that shit when he's deep in a fight, nowadays he tries to sway side to side......

I think vitor deals with adversity better now.his sister (RIP)and his steroid troubles are behind him.He has more accuracy and speed than ever. His boxing is fucking sick and he has underrated wrestling and bjj (that dude can hip bump ANYONE)he broke his had in the 1st against terry martin and came back and finished....tomkins has him in line.He's the next champ!

 "and then when you factor in that he had to be pulled off of wand and keep telling me who's the legend?" The legend of that fight is stronger than Vitor.

I like Belfort in this rematch. This is a bad match-up for Wand. Speed kills here...plus I think Wand is too far out of his prime to compete at the top. Seems like he's trying to trash talk his way into fights. Doesn't suit him, IMO.
