Better late than never, I suppose.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) on Thursday held its traditional pre-fight press conference for this weekend's UFC on FX 8: "Belfort vs. Rockhold" event, which takes place tomorrow night (May 18, 2013) from Arena Jaragua in Santa Catarina, Brazil.
In attendance were middleweight headliners Vitor Belfort and Luke Rockhold, along with hometown hero Ronaldo Souza, who takes on surging 185-pound standout Chris Camozzi. UFC executive Marshall Zelaznik was also in attendance.
The live stream was riddled with technical difficulties (see Hemmi piece it together here) and the promotion has since assembled the most relevant quotes in the above highlight video.
I guess it's better than nothing.
