Vitor Belfort 'Road to UFC 142' video diary for Anthony Johnson fight (Episode three)

Believe it or not, we're less than a week away.

This Saturday night (Jan. 14, 2012), Vitor Belfort vs. Anthony Johnson will serve as the UFC 142 co main event at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Belfort has not competed in his native land since scoring a 44-second technical knockout win over Wanderlei Silva way back in 1998. He'll likely look to duplicate those impressive results against "Rumble," an over-sized welterweight who will make his 185-pound Octagon debut against the division's former number one contender.

It's got all the ingredients of an exciting, hard-hitting battle that "The Phenom" promises will deliver on fight night. And speaking of ingredients, Belfort is featuring Mike Dolce and "The Dolce Diet" in this week's video blog.

We'll be sure to pass along any remaining installments of Belfort's "Road to Rio" video diary series as the promotion releases them. In the meantime, feel free to check out the latest UFC 142 fight card and rumors right here.
