Vitor Belfort vs Shogun Rua

We have never seen these two brazililan people fight before, which is amazing considering they've both been in two different promotions and shared the same weight category before.

Who would win between these two brazilians? Vitor or Shogun? I don't respect either of them, but I think it would be a fun fight. From what I see, Shogun is more diverse in his muay thai attacks whereas Vitor is more explosive and hits faster and harder. And he has shown he has a good left high kick too.

I dont think Vitor could put Shogun away so I'd take Shogun by late stoppage.

Shogun did get dropped by Alexander, Killz. So he has shown he could potentially be finished early.

He did, but he fought 5 hard rounds with Dan henderson and didnt get finished so, y'know, it's hard to really guess how it might go down.

Vitor seems like the far better fighter at this point, and he's what, like 7 years older than Shogun? Vitor's resurgence has been great to watch, I wish it'd happen for more old legends.

Maybe Shogun should ask for Jesus.

If it was a 3 round fight I think Vitor wins a 29-28 decision. If it was a 5 round fight I think Shogun would win it 48-47.

Basically I see Vitor winning the first 2 rounds and then gas.
