Vitor Belfort's nickname is the 'The Phenom' and he was again proved it tonight, finishing former Strikeforce Champion Luke Rockhold in the first round. Belfort landed a stunning spinning heel kick that rocked his opponent and then bounced on him with punches, rendering Rockhold unconsious.

After months of leadup, after weeks of trash talk, and a weigh-in pushing match, there were still raw feelings as the UFC on FX 8 main event began. Combatants Vitor Belfort and Luke Rockhold refused to touch gloves prior to their match, and then as the fight transpired, Rockhold chose to taunt Belfort, inviting him in for exchanges.

It would prove to be an ill-advised move. Belfort took him up on the offer, unleashing a striking series that is likely to be replayed for months to come, and certainly around December when the year's best are compiled.

Belfort crushed Rockhold with a spinning heel kick and then followed with a few thunderous punches from the top, earning a knockout stoppage at 2:32 of the first round.

Surely Rockhold can't stick and move for 5 rounds?

Also Jacare rocked Luke multiple times in their bout and I really don't rate Souza's stand up

I see Rockhold dominating this fight. Vitor may do an inital flurry but won't be able to catch Luke. Then Luke will find his range and start picking him part.

Everytime I see the word Rockhold, I read it as cuckold. Too much porn or Freudian slip? Not sure. Phone Post

Luke should tap the mat and just walk back to the locker room.

Because he wasn't booked in this spot to win or be competitive.

It's the Belfort show which is why he gets to headline in Brazil every time now.

Unless Luke could kayo him; he has ZERO chance.

May as well take no damage and tap out. . Phone Post

Rockhold coming out to virtually no fan reaction was awkward. Felt like I was watching a prelim fighter enter before the arena was full
