Sonnen: Belfort ‘almost unstoppable’

Saturday, May 18, 2013

Vitor Belfort fights former Strikeforce champion Luke Rockhold in the main event of UFC on FX 8.

Chael Sonnen and Kenny Florian’s FUEL TV weigh in show covered things getting heated at Friday (see below), but Sonnen says it is going to be Vitor Belfort’s fight.

“He’s just as fast, he’s just as accurate, he’s just as intimidating, but he’s a lot smaller,” said Sonnen of Belfort. “When he made his debut he was heavyweight, then he came down to light heavyweight, won the championship over Randy Couture. Now he’s down at middleweight. This guy is almost unstoppable.

“Outside of Anderson Silva, we haven’t seen anybody that can beat him here. Really big test and I think finally mentally he’s starting to believe in himself.”

What do you think UG? Is Belfort unstopable?
