Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort: Staredown of the Year Candidate

(Oh, I’d say it’s beyond ‘real’ at this point. Props: SurferKenTV3 and Biggie Smalls)

In case you missed it at Wednesday’s press conference, here’s video of the rather intense staredown between UFC 126 main eventers Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort. Silva claims there’s nothing personal about Saturday’s match with "The Phenom," although Silva was reportedly upset that Belfort accepted the fight in the first place, considering they were former training partners. Weigh-ins for UFC 126 go down tonight at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas at 7 p.m. ET / 4 p.m. PT, so brace yourself for more uncomfortable closeness between the two Brazilian stars.

After the jump: Belfort tells his hero Ariel Helwani that Anderson’s attitude is just giving him more motivation for the fight.

@ Goog - Anderson Silva gets to be an arrogant dick because he beats the fuck out of everybody. Its kind of payback on the world for that tiny-boy voice of his.

I hope Vitor wins but he'll get knocked out in the first round.

Ryan Bader will win by second round TKO.

Forest Griffin will win by third round submission.

You're all welcome. If any of you have any questions or concerns about my picks Ill answer them every day bro.

PS Never EVER Google 'Derek Morgan's Goatie' with safesearch off.

Goddamn it. Why are my two biggest bro-heros wearing Montel Williams face pubes? First it was Derek Morgan and now it's motherfucking Anderson Silva.

With how old he is, The Lord is a boxing fan and doesnt understand this newfangled sport. But if he does watch he has Silva since he has more money and most likey made a larger donation when the collection plate went around.

@Invictis: Nice. That gif could have also worked well as a "Deal with it."hxxp://

This card is fucking stacked. Good lord. If this card even lives up to 60% of its potential ... well, let's just say everything is coming up Milhouse.

A stare-down of Waderlei-ian proportions.
JCVD as Timecop- February 4, 2011 at 8:38 am
I'm making a bold call, because I believe!
Belfort gets the KO early in round two.

I forgot what it feels like to see him lose.
Invictis- February 4, 2011 at 8:30 am
Who the fuck is this? Paging me at 5:46 in the morning, crack of dawn, now I'm yawning, wipe the cold out my eye, see who's this paging me, and why.

Photo of the day: Ariel Helwani is almost as Big as Vitor Belfort

Here's the reality... Win or lose, Silva's still an arrogant dick. If he gets hit so hard he's in a coma for three days, he'll still wake up and have that condescending cocksucker look on his giant dome. So the only real treat for me will be when this prick is either forced out with injury or retires. Make no mistake, it's fun watching him get beat, but it won't change or humble him a bit. He'll be a dick till he's gone. Then he'll just be a dick that used to "fight" well sometimes, but is now just a dick.

I said dick a lot.

I think it's called "Pore" some water on me to wake my ass up!

Anderson was just admiring how clean Vitor's pores are. He wanted to ask him what he uses, but decided to wait until after the fight.
C-Bus Allstar- February 4, 2011 at 7:36 am
Ariel Helwani is quite simply the best MMA interviewer on the planet.

I can imagine what it must feel like for Vitor fucking Belfort to come up to you and say "Hey man, I'm a big fan of yours." And it feels like warm piss running down my leg. Happy piss.

skeletor- February 4, 2011 at 7:34 am
Oh No! I just realized Silva's sporting the goatee that is never good for anybody.
