Vitor Belfort: "I have more respect for Michael Bisping than he has for himself."

Quote:
"I have a lot of respect for him and I think he's a great fighter, a fantastic one at that. I've learn a lot from him, so I'll be ready. But he'll face a hungry guy, and a guy who has learned a lot. He's a fantastic fighter, but my arm will be the one that is raised, and he knows that deep in his soul. He knows I will be motivated enough for the fight. My arm will be raised for sure, my arm will be raised. That's something that I'm doing today. I'm winning this fight today in every aspect you can imagine, with all the respect, no arrogance at all. I've got more respect for Michael Bisping than Michael Bisping has for himself."

Belfort is an awesome fighter, but I really think he was dropped on his head when he was a baby.

Just a man who's been through a lot in life. So he views things in a positive lens even though the way he articulates it may be a bit awkward at times.

Vitor needs to finish this fight early if he's going to win. He often fades late in fights, but that's where Bisping fights best. This'll either end with a Belfort KO in rounds 1 or 2, or a Bisping UD. It could go either way.

Can someone tell me when was the last time Vitor legitimately faded in a fight? Has anyone here actually watched the man fight since 1997?

Fact - Vitor Belfort didn't gas after four rounds of getting elbowed to hell against a much larger Jon Jones.

Fact - Michael Bisping gassed against Mayhem Miller not too long ago. In the first round no less.

These are the facts. And I'd wager Vitor's cardio outlasts Bisping's.

The more I think about the fight, the clearer it gets, that there is no way Bisping can pull this off. Vitor has a tendecy to not engage, but it's always against opponents who are dangerous. Against Bisping there is absolutely nothing he has to be afraid of(if Bisping hasn't found his KO power or improved his offensive wrestling that is). Do you guys remember what happened when Wand finally decided to blitz him at the end of the round? Bisping tried to run away,got hit and crumbled. And Wand is nowhere near as fast as Vitor.
Still rooting for Bisping thou.

People are listening to Rogan too much, I'm sure Bisping's in shape and his cardio is pretty good but it all goes back to the Sonnen fight, many people believe that you should do something with a takedown and then you combine that with Rogan going "Michael Bisping is the most underrated guy in the UFC." and "Chael Sonnen needs to finish this fight in order to win." Then you go watch the Stann fight and you hear about his heart rate and his cardio. People get mesmerized by what they're hearing and they buy into it.

In order for cardio to come into play he needs to avoid Vitor's onslaught, something I'm not totally convinced he can do.
