 - 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.

ah fuck it, who cares.

Randy vs Brock forever broke any illusion of a ranking system or "no.1 contender" deal.

Title fights are whatever is available that is awesome.....and this is awesome.

inf0 - Fuck it.. Anderson got a title shot after 1 fight too.. and it was against Leben...

This whole thing has been blown out of proportion by Anderson Silva and his annoying management.. if it was up to them, nobody would deserve the fight with Silva... cept maybe someone he's already beaten.



yup, they didnt think hendo, marquardt, wanderlei silva, damien maia, vitor, gsp should get  a shot at Anderson.

I mean the middleweight division is already as weak as it is. Youd think they would welcome the competition.

His management didnt think Shogun should fight Machida either. Some type of superiority complex coming out that management group.

I wonder if this match was "requested" by the Sheik (sp) as part of the deal?? Much like Renzo joining the UFC was rumored to be part ofthe deal.

That sounds more like Tito than Silva IMO.

Horrible attitude to have for a person fighting for a world title. Even if its being humble. He needs to be believing that he is the best, that is his belt and its his time. No more talk about how he did not want a shot yet

Bobby Lupo -  Vitor is going to lose badly because in his head he doesn't believe he deserves to be in this this fight and his problems in the ring/cage have always been mental. Bet the house on Silva


Yeah, this is a bad sign. Silva will dominate here.

I don't give Vitor much of a chance anyway, but if he's not 100% mentally prepared and ready for this fight, it could get ugly.

 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.

I didn't have much interest in a Dan Henderson rematch.

Silva would probably win even more easily than he did the first time.

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.
