Quick Quote of the Day: Vitor Belfort Says He’ll Run Through Everybody Who stands In His Way to the UFC MW Title

(“Expect punches to the back of the head, every fight bro.”)

Tatame caught up with Vitor Belfort following his impressive victory over Yoshihiro Akiyama Saturday night at UFC 133 and the former UFC light heavyweight champion said he isn’t letting Dana White’s statement that he needs to “chew on” his loss to Anderson Silva for a while deter him from keeping his eye on the middleweight belt.

He says that his number one goal is to get another shot at Silva, or whomever holds the belt at the time, so he can make up for his poor showing the last time he fought for the belt at UFC 126 in February.

“That’s my wish. I don’t know what they’ll decide. I don’t know what the fans want to see and since UFC guys will evaluate the situation, saying who deserves a title shot or not… I want to fight for the belt and I’ll run through everybody who stands in my way.That’s my goal.”

“The Phenom” said that he was happy with his win over “Sexyama” and that his patience in the fight and his advanced level of conditioning, which is a result of years of experience and the right mix of coaches, made the difference in the bout.

“When I’m fighting, I always want and outcome like this one, but it’s not always that things go according to our plan, but I always go for the KO and that’s my expectation every time I’m fighting,” he explains. “That’s the mature Phenom. If the time goes by and the guy doesn’t get more mature, it’s a waste of time. I’m more mature and I’ve changed some things in my trainings, like using the natural gym with my coach Alvinho (Alvaro Romano), I added many things from my past and some new things I’ve learned. We combined it all and brought a Vintage Belfort. With no doubts, I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in my entire career, I’m feeling like a 19 years old boy with the maturity of a 34 years old man.”

If he doesn’t get his wish of a title shot in his next appearance, Belfort says fans can expect him to go out and prove that he deserves a shot in the coming months.

“You can hope I’ll bring my A game, that’s the only thing I can promise my fans: I’ll give my best on my next goals towards a new chance at the belt.”

Xeno -

I was the first one that mocked your use of Lucid moron, and just because your context was AGAIN wrong for the word I will place its definition below so you can try again. I like watching you commit comment suicide with your idiocy btw. Maybe you should stick to words you dummy.

lu·cid? ?[loo-sid]

1. easily understood; completely intelligible or comprehensible: a lucid explanation.
2. characterized by clear perception or understanding; rational or sane: a lucid moment in his madness.
3. shining or bright.
4. clear; pellucid; transparent.

So they can be as suspect as a Lucid dream huh? as suspect as something already completely intelligible or comprehensible? Awww forget it...
XENOPHON- August 10, 2011 at 12:33 pm

LOL, you got me. I should have written lame. The UFC Middleweight division is Lame.

Looking at the top ten, aside from a juiced up Sonnen, there is no credible threat to Anderson.

Anyone that believes so: is as suspect as a lucid dream,.

Any better, only a real "Champ`ion" can have a hangover on a Tuesday morning. GRIN

Fighters take punches to the back of the head because they are not expecting jesus, bro. If you espect Jesus behind you, you no take the punches. You must hemember, hemember to spect jesus every day, bro. Chocolate Al does not hemember, that is why he lose to Hampage Jackson, and Hashad, and Hich Franklin. They say it is because he old. No, that is escape goat. In Brazil, we don't do dat. We don't go on da myspace and say excuse, we don't make excuse for be late because horse does not want carrot, we go and we fight for da knoke out, for jesus, bro, everyday.
djp1988- August 10, 2011 at 11:44 am
I feel that I should point out the obvious.
1. Belford expects Jesus, bro.
2. Sexyama is the sexiest of sexy.
3. Jesus is probably a pretty sexy guy, bro.
4. Punches to the back of the head = Releasing of one sexy Jesus, bro.
5. Profit.

@Jazzninja . . . Um, except nobody actually HATES Akiyama. You may think he's overrated but you can't hate the guy. Wishing an H-Bomb on him doesn't make a lick of sense. Wishing an H-bomb on Bisping . . . Now that's nothing short of lucid, man.

Between Xeno not knowing what the hell lucid means and Flaneritz making what is probably the most idiotic statement about mma this side of the heavyweight forum at sherdog, daddy's hangover is not improving whatsoever.

Vitor and I are very similar, I’m feeling like a 34 years old man with the maturity of a 19 years old boy.

Sometimes though it is nice to have a troll in the room to point and laugh at.

Anyone who was happy about Henderson's unnecessary shots to Bisping after their fight was over has no right to say anything about Belfort.
RSparrow- August 9, 2011 at 11:45 pm
Ya, you see... Belfort's mind should be in like 2 different divisions, an A league and B league.... right Xeno
Nut Puncher 9000- August 9, 2011 at 9:55 pm Was that another yahoo word of the day Xeno?
XENOPHON- August 9, 2011 at 8:42 pm
Belfort is good, but his not all that.

He's fortunate to be in one of the UFC's least interesting weight classes. The names on that list of top 10's are at most nothing more than lucid.
Todd M- August 9, 2011 at 8:24 pm
Tito said it best (shocking, I know) Vitor is a mental midget. We all love a dangerous Vitor but throw him in with a grinder and he crashes and burns like a london bus
skeletor- August 9, 2011 at 7:04 pm
He needs to fight Leben. That is all.
Guayansoul- August 9, 2011 at 6:50 pm
I was thinking the same thing about the punches to the back of the head... I was wondering when someone would make a comment about it haha. Not saying it's easy in that situation to avoid it though. I like Vitor, but agree he shouldn't get an immediate title shot.
SuckMySkyWalker- August 9, 2011 at 5:51 pm
Flaneritz is a complete moron.
Flaneritz- August 9, 2011 at 5:47 pm
Vitor is deff. worthy of a shot at the belt. Maybe after another win. If Sexyama had won this fight he would have surely been in line next. And damn... that really is a good price on true religion Jeans. very good shopping web!
SuckMySkyWalker- August 9, 2011 at 5:31 pm
Hahaha...i love CP solely for the fact that Vitor is my most hated fighter by a long shot. As soon as he opens his mouth i want to urinate in it. Love the captions. You get an LOL out of me everytime.

"tanks you Jesus for letting me punch people asleep bro"

"expect punches to the back of the head every fight bro"

I wish Hepatitis C, B, X, and Q on Vitors face. Fukkn clown.
HugePenisLarry- August 9, 2011 at 5:17 pm
Having read this article I would just like to say, that is a great price for True Religion jeans.
