Quoteworthy:

"My plan is to go in there to fight, I'm not gonna be dancing around. Anderson (Silva) is an expert [standing up] with kicks and knees and elbows and I respect that -- but I'm not afraid of it. I think every day that I'm gonna win the fight, that I'm gonna push the pace. I have to look for the opening, look for the gap and if it goes to the ground I have to look for the submission. If we're [on the feet] I have to look in his eyes and know I'm gonna beat him. He's the champion and I'm the challenger, it's gonna be a lion facing a lion. It's gonna be a great, great fight. I'm about to accomplish my journey. In the name of Jesus I'm gonna leave [UFC 126] with a victory."

UFC middleweight number one contender Vitor Belfort puts his name (and the name of Jesus) on the line when he takes on reigning division champion Anderson Silva at UFC 126: "Silva vs. Belfort" on Feb. 5 in Las Vegas. "The Phenom" is hoping to capitalize on some of the holes in "The Spider's" web that were exposed in the four-and-a-half round ass whooping delivered by Chael Sonnen back at UFC 117 in August 2010. Can the former champion claim yet another title inside the Octagon? Or will Silva prove the promos wrong and show the world that it is he, not Belfort, with "the fastest hands in the UFC?"
