Vitor Belfort vs. Luke Rockhold staredown pic from UFC on FX 8 press conference in Brazil

In case all that pre-fight jibber-jabber about testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) and "being a man" wasn't enough, here's further evidence that UFC on FX 8 headliners Vitor Belfort and Luke Rockhold don't like each other. The good news is, fighting solves everything, so expect a violent resolution to their conflict this Saturday night (May 18) in Brazil.

Oh boy.

In case you hadn't noticed, Vitor Belfort wants to beat the shit out of Luke Rockhold. Not surprisingly, the feeling is mutual when it comes to the former Strikeforce middleweight champion.

They'll have a chance to get the job done in the main event of UFC on FX 8, which takes place this Saturday night (May 18, 2013) at Arena Jaragua in Santa Catarina, Brazil. The winner is likely to position themselves atop the very short list of 185-pound title contenders.

T-minus 48 hours.

Also coming nose-to-nose at today's UFC on FX 8 pre-fight press conference (video and live updates here if you missed it) were co-main eventers Ronaldo Souza and Chris Camozzi. "Jacare" can also get his name "in the mix" if he can dispose of "Kamikaze."

Jacare-camozzi_medium will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC on FX 8 fight card, starting with the Facebook "Prelims," which are scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. ET, right on through the FUEL TV-televised under card bouts at 6 p.m. ET and then main card action, which is slated to begin at 9 p.m. ET on FX channel.

Good stuff.
