Vitor Belfort finishes Terry Martin at Affliction 'Banned' with broken hand

Vitor Belfort

Props: XTreme Couture

Quoteworthy:

"The first punch I threw. It was a straight left. I knew right away it broke. But I had to keep going. I couldn’t throw my combinations I had worked on. Coach Tompkins was yelling at me to throw my combos. At the end of the first round I went back to the corner and Tompkins was yelling at me, 'Why don’t you throw your combos?' I said, 'My hand is broken.' He said, 'Ok' and Randy said, 'Just go first. Go for it and finish the fight.'"

Former UFC champion Vitor Belfort talks about a hand injury that he sustained early in his bout against Terry Martin over the weekend at Affliction: "Banned." It didn't appear to affect his performance -- "The Phenom" connected with a crushing flying knee in the second round, which set up a fight-ending combination that put Martin out for the count. It was an impressive middleweight debut for the Brazilian.
