Anderson just caught him with a big kick. Period. It wasn't a counter, he just flat out kicked him in the face.
Vitor is also known for showing up in some fights, and Statue of Libertying in others.
Regardless of whether Vitor's style is aggressive or not, the point that I'm trying to make Anderson only fights fighters that or going to fight him. When he fought Vitor, it is clear that Vitor's intentions were to be the aggressor as soon as Anderson began to do those antics. That was when Anderson caught Vitor with that front kick. I'm not saying that it was a counter strike. I'm saying it wasn't until before then that Vitor began to fight Anderson.
