“The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”

In Vitor Belfort’s case, the enemy of my UFC 152 opponent is my new head coach.

Shortly before “The Phenom” decided to challenge light heavyweight king Jon Jones for his crown on just one month’s notice, he started honing his skills with the talented Blackzilian squad in Florida.

Although this will mark Evans’ first major coaching gig, Belfort’s decision to have “Suga” run the show is understandable. Theoretically, Evans knows Jones better than any other light heavyweight on the planet.

Not only were they former training partners at Greg Jackson’s gym, but he is also the only man to spend 25 minutes inside the Octagon with Jones in a real fight. Jones posted a unanimous decision win over his prior mentor at UFC 145 in April.

 I really hope Vitor Wins.

Like I don't pray to God, but for this, I actually made a deal saying I would go to church every sunday if he makes this happen.

BTW, I'm not a practicing catholic, but if he loses, I will be.


WAR VITOR.

fuck Jon "chicken bones" jones

 Awesome, I so want to see Jones lose. I like him as a fighter but dislike his personality and I feel like a loss might humble him a bit.

I think Rashad did a good job breaking fights down when he was a guest announcer. He seemed pretty analytical and as someone pointed out. No one knows Bones better. He has the speed to close the distance. I'd like to see him circle a bit more, rather than the straight in/out.

How is this going to help, Rashad trained with Jones and still couldn't do much in the 5 rounds against Jones. Jones by destruction.

Interesting. Vitor could flat-line him if he gets a combo off inside and Rashad will help enable this by revealing more of Jones' game. I'm still giving a big edge to Jones but Vitor has a shot.

The problem isn't that people don't know what to do against Jones, it's that they don't know what to do after Jones starts whipping their asses.

You need a mixture of Rashad and Machida's gameplan, offensive wrestling and well-placed strikes.

Easier said than done though.

Spong was going crazy during Rashads fight with Jones. It looked as tho Spong was pissed with Rashads lack of "effort".

I hope Vitor shows more toughness in there because Spong Reem and Evans will be screaming their heads off.
