Belfort can win by doing the same thing differently.
Chael hit Silva. A lot. Because he was more concerened with take downs.
Vitor will take him down for the same reason. His GnP is a lot harder than chaels.
Silva needs a minute or two to find his rhythm and his opponents. If he's not careful he'll be rocked, on his back and getting pounded before then.
Pressure and no respect.
I think Vitor should fight the same fight he fought against Franklin honestly. Not rush into the fight, because that's what Silva likes his opponents to do.
He is a perfect at catching the other fighter coming for him. He is an excellent counter-striker.
He won't pull the same s**t he did against Maia, that's for sure, because Maia's striking is cr*p compared to SIlva's, not matter how much he improved it.
Against Chael he was to concerned about the takedowns, that's the reason why he was reluctant and attacking. I think he tried to impose the pace more and attack in the 4th round, but evenutally he got taked down again.
I believe the outcome of the fight will depend on one thing: who lands the first good punch.
I see Belfort beeing more cautious though and not wanting to rush like a mad man, because he knows what Silva is capable of.
Plus, this is his big chance. He's been through a lot and has waited too long for this chance.
I am pulling for Belfort, even though i see most people don't give him any chance.
And i think Vitor will get the belt!
