Feb 05th 2011 is the a soap opera started in Abu Dhabi where Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort stared down for the first time. Injuries prevented the fight to come the terms and after Chael Sonnen’s drug test failure, “The Phenom” took over the contender status to try to stop “The Spider”.
“He’s done an incredible work... what can I say? Anderson is the champion, the best pound-for-pound in the world and I’ll have the chance to fight him. I’ll do my best”
Belfort said nothing new besides admitting that Anderson is the best p4p in the world. Is this a sign that Vitor has realized how difficult his mission is to be accomplished or just respect for the dominating champion?
