Some contend that his drop in aggressiveness stems from finding Christ, but there seems to be little truth in that. A more plausible answer, one that Belfort references time and again, is his sisterís disappearance in 2003 and the ongoing, fruitless investigation. His shuffling between training camps from event to event no doubt had a detrimental psychological impact as well.

But responsibility for his performances lies solely on Belfort, who entered MMA and NHB as a contender destined for fame and regressed into the inconsistent fighter whose ability to deal with tough competition is questionable.

Itís difficult to imagine Vitor Belfort becoming a relevant force in mixed martial arts again. He has the physical skills to keep fighting, but the question remains the same: come fight day, can he bring it all together instead of finding himself a deer in headlights? If history is any indicator, then probably not.

But he is young, and his physical gifts have yet to leave him. With some psychological guidance and the right team behind him, Belfort may still be a force in mixed martial arts for years to come. Give him two more fights, then weíll see if Vitorís back.

Hi. I am such A Vitor fan... Sad that all the talking about him are true.. He may havbve lost his prime due to some unfortunate incident but I wish him well. Good guidance and conditioning will still bring oout the old vitor we are all looking forward to see. He still has the skill all the tools but the psychological aspect of it... I am not sure. I hope we can be of help to him. Does he speak english?
