Quoteworthy:

"I don’t know what happened, he seemed upset or nervous, I don’t know. We were face to face, but we didn’t greet each other. Some people like to stare down, but when the fight is on it doesn’t matter who can hold the stare the longest. I won the heavyweight tournament and the light heavyweight championship, and I want to be called a UFC champion again. Anderson is really dangerous and has all these weapons, but I have a good chance, and I’m working on a strategy to beat him."

UFC number one middleweight contender Vitor Belfort seems to have rattled the cage of current division champion Anderson Silva during a recent trip overseas to promote their upcoming title fight at UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi on April 10. "The Spider" wasn't his usual jovial self -- but is that an indication of pre-fight trepidation or was it simply his war face? "The Phenom" may find out the hard way -- though it's hard to overlook his resume when arguing against his chances this Spring. Upset special, or just another victim?
