“A wrestler won’t be able to take me down and give me a hard time. I came from jiu-jitsu,” said Belfort, who also revealed the cost of such confidence. “I had seven trainers working with me during the last three months. I spent around $100,000 with them.”
“They decided to award Barboza with the best knockout and best fight of the night,” Belfort explained. “I think I deserved at least the best fight, but the problem is that they would have to reward Johnson, too, and Dana is really mad at him.”
Belfort’s showdown with Wanderlei Silva is expected to take place in June. The bout will be a rematch of the pair’s 1998 confrontation in which Belfort steamrolled the future Pride Fighting Championships star in just 44 seconds.
