UFC Quick Quote: Vitor Belfort is going to look like a gay giraffe

"I hope (Belfort) passes. We've seen pictures of him of late, whether he's a little fatter than we've seen him ever, or he's a little skinnier than we've ever seen him. Well guess what, steroids work and that's what happens to a body when you don't get to use what you've been using. So one of two things are going to happen: He's going to fail a steroids test moving toward this fight against Chris Weidman, or he's going to try to be clean and he's going to get injured, or he's going to look like a gay giraffe. Either one of those instances, Chris Weidman will freight train him, or he won't show because he failed the test."

How do you spot a gay giraffe? Sorry, that's not my department, but Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight Tim Kennedy has a pretty good idea of what they look like. Just imagine Vitor Belfort -- sans steroids -- trying to train without getting injured. That's the official prediction from the Strikeforce import (via Submission Radio), who is contemplating a drop down to the welterweight division. And if "The Phenom" does make it to the UFC 184 pay-per-view (PPV) next February (more on that here), Chris Weidman is going to "freight train him," according to Kennedy, which then paves the way for this top contender. Anyone disagree?
