Michael-jackson-moonwalk_medium

"It is always a case of anything can happen in the Octagon. We’ll have to see. You have to be very careful when you are fighting a guy like Anderson, who is an expert in everything. I will have to be professional, this is sport and not personal. You need to perform, compete and do your job – there’s nothing personal about it.... [My punching’s] not explosive, it’s performance. What do you expect to see, Michael Jackson dancing? I am a relaxed man yes, but fighting is my job. My style is my style."

-- Number one middleweight contender, Vitor Belfort, tells The National that it's nothing personal -- just business -- when he steps inside the Octagon to face UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva. "The Phenom" and "The Spider," both Brazilians, have mutual respect from one another. But that won't stop either one of them from doing whatever it takes to win at UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi on April 10. For his part, Belfort hopes his high performance will be the key to victory on fight night. So is Belfort ready to become the "King of Pop" or will Silva once again have his way with yet another challenger? Sound off, Maniacs.
