At the end of the day i have anderson winning but if he losses it will not matter. It has been a great run and it still amazes me he has been so damn good despite his age. All great athlete break down after 34. Its not like he losing to some bum. Vitor belfort is a legit opponent if he looses he losses. However if he had lost to chael sonnen my tone would be very different. Vitor belfort is a more decorated fighter than sonnen. I can accept a lost with him, sonnen was an underdog, vitor is a legit.
anderson is like a year and a half older than vitor. there is going to be no significant age difference here.
His helmet was stifling, it narrowed his vision. And he must see far. His shield was heavy. It threw him off balance. And his target is far away.
