Well, that was ... unusual.
Ever do that thing as a kid, where you spin around with your arms out -- helicopter style -- to see how dizzy you can get without falling down? That's apparently part of Vitor Belfort's training regimen as he prepares for his UFC on FX 8 main event against Luke Rockhold, which takes place at Arena Jaragua in Santa Catarina, Brazil, on May 18, 2013.
So too, is getting his hair cut like a Hare Krishna.
Maybe I'm out of the loop or don't know how they train down in Brazil, but I couldn't quite figure out what he was doing at the 2:32 mark (shudders). It comes right after his game of hot potato on the beach. Anyway, it's hard to poke fun at his methods, considering his last six wins have all ended violently, so he must be doing something right.
All kidding aside, Rockhold is going to have his hands full when they collide in just a few weeks, but defeating "The Phenom" will be the surest way to silence his critics and perhaps earn himself a 185-pound title shot against the winner of Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman, who do battle at UFC 162 this summer in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Who's betting on Belfort?
