Months ago when this possible bout came up I was intrigued. Now it's actually happening. I really think the stars are aligned. The current title holder should have taken a non title fight against Chael to save the card. Now he has unbelievable pressure to take out Vitor. Vitor has NOTHING TO LOSE AND EVERYTHING TO GAIN.

All eyes are going to be glued to this fight now.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

I like Vitor, but there's a reason "old school guys" like him are ending up cross eyed on "new school guys'" highlight reels.

Next month will be no different.

Disregarding of what I would like to happen, i have to agree with you here. Like everything else, the sport has evolved. Evolution being, looking at past mistakes and correcting them.
It's a lot harder to unlearn "bad" habits than learning new ones.

I think it's because the "old school guys" are now the "old guys".

The bro seemed so forced and awkward. Guys like Koscheck show that old school can hang with new school, let's see how this one goes.

I mean if we really think about it, there are still old school guys at the top. Silva, Kos, GSP, BJ (sorta kinda?), nick diaz, and theres probably more i just cant think of them.

They're not really old school in the sense Vitor means though. All of these guys came into the sport well after stricter rules, gameplanning, strategy etc.

Vitor was talking about the Bas, Couture, Tank Abbott type era when he originally rose to stardom.
