Quoteworthy:

Anderson is very versatile so you can’t have one settled game plan. The important thing is to be prepared for anything because he’s a great fighter. You can get there thinking things will go one way, but it can suddenly change. I know he’s the best in the world, but I can get intimidated by it. I don’t think anything (about Wanderlei Silva's comments), he’s a spectator and he can think whatever he wants to. If you have a mouth, you can say whatever you want and Wanderlei has a big mouth. But it’s about cheering, everyone can cheer for their favorite, and the important is to be respectful and know how to choose the right words. In February I’ll have my chance for the belt and let’s see how it’ll be.

Is there a Brazilian beef brewing between Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva? Apparently "The Phenom" doesn't like "The Axe Murderers" comments that he'll be "freaked out" by "The Spider" at UFC 126 on February 5. Will the Silva double-team rattle Belfort mentally on fight night? Or is he destined to do what no other UFC middleweight has done when he fights for the title over the Superbowl weekend?
