UFCs Vitor Belfort makes the March 2012 cover of GQ in Brazil

Joana Prado is not the only model in the Belfort home.

Her husband, former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight number one contender, Vitor Belfort, graced the March 2012 cover of GQ magazine in Brazil.

"The Phenom" is fresh off a first round submission victory over Anthony Johnson at UFC 142 in front of his hometown crowd in Rio de Janeiro earlier this year. In addition to high-end photo shoots, Belfort is currently in the midst of filming the first-ever The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Brazil, opposite his rival Wanderlei Silva.

At the conclusion of the mixed martial arts (MMA) reality show, Belfort and Silva will meet inside the Octagon at later this year ... most likely in the summer. And hopefully the rematch lasts longer than 47 seconds, which is how their first encounter ended in favor of Belfort way back in 1998.

Check out a behind-the-scenes video of Belfort during his GQ photo shoot after the jump (it's in Portuguese):
