Machida hurt Weidman, Weidman said so himself. Belfort fights similar in some ways as Weidman, both come forward and are aggressive,  this could favor Belfort early as he has a big speed advantage. If Weidman was smart he would take Belfort down for first few rounds to gas him out. Can't wait for this fight

I don't agree with him. He's been wrong about too many things already.

I think it just depends. Vitor is way more dangerous than machida, for the first 10-15 minutes of the fight. Machida is more dangerous later on, as he showed in the Weidman fight.
