[VIDEO] Anderson Silva Calls Vitor Belfort “A Coward” on the Set of TUF: Brazil

(This face describes the situation better than any words truly can.) 

We guess when you are able to knockout a guy in the most devastating fashion possible in front of millions of people, you can pretty much call him whatever you want to afterward. If you don’t believe us, just ask Chuck Liddell, or for that matter, UFC middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva. After front kicking Vitor Belfort into hyper-sleep in the first round of their highly anticipated grudge match at UFC  126 and subsequently trouncing Yushin Okami at UFC 134, “The Spider” spent most of 2011 rehabbing his injured shoulder and judging nude body-painting contests like the boss that he truly is. When word got out that he would in fact be rematching world-renowned shit talker Chael Sonnen at UFC 148, the war of words began once again. And per usual, 99.9% of it came from the challenger.

But don’t let the completely falsified percentages fool you, the champ can talk trash with the best of them. Just check out the clip below, in which Anderson offers Wanderlei Silva a little bit of advice on “The Axe Murderer’s” opposing coach/upcoming opponent, Vitor Belfort, after Wanderlei brings it up. Apparently unaware that he still has a microphone on, Silva makes a mistake of Frank Drebian proportions, calling the Phenom “a coward” before realizing what he has done.

OUCH. Simple, yet effective; like a perfectly placed upkick to the jaw. OK, so maybe one is simpler than the other, but you get the point. Only a fighter as skilled as Silva can take kicking a man while he’s down to a whole new level. Then again, he’s already mastered kicking a man while he’s up, so maybe he’s just trying something new at this point.

On the strategic front, Anderson tells Wanderlei to keep coming forward if he wants to emerge victorious come UFC 147, which is akin to telling a rampaging bull to make sure and destroy everything within the boundaries of the fine Chinaware shop you just dropped him in.

On a side note, has anyone actually been watching the first international season of The Ultimate Fighter?

I don't see Wand knocking out Vitor the way Anderson did. Anderson's advice may not work for Wand, they are two completely different fighters with different skill levels. Wand can't pull off the same things that Anderson can. If Wand moves forward too much, he is getting knocked out. But you have to give it to Wand, he is going to put on a good fight--win or lose.

I think the "bull in the china shop" routine is what cost Wandy in his first fight with Vitor. Could you imagine if Wandy got tagged by Leben what will happen this time if Vitor counters him charging in.

Strong words from someone who refuses to fight someone his own size..

I don't think Okami or Griffin are any smaller than AS, or at least not like the height difference of anyone JJ fights

Belfort is going to smash Wanderlei wont even be a close fight. Wanderlei will not make it out of the first round. Once again he will open his eyes to the sight of doctors, blury lights and repeating the words what happened i kept punssssshing punnnnssshing.

Not watchin yet, Fuel is gonna start airing it I think. As much as I like Wandy, that "coward" is going to fucking destroy him. Belfort by brutal ko in rnd1 followed by like 50 unanswered shots to the back of the head.

I download the episodes every Monday and watch them first chance I get. I like it better than the US TUF going on right now, the fights are much better!

Thank you TDC - lol - I wanted to finish it but was hoping someone else would.

Agreed, Goat, but I think "Muk Fucker" or "Poliwag fucker" are a lot more degrading.

Anderson Silva could call Vitor Belfort Charizard Fucker if he wanted to and there's absolutely nothing anybody in the world could do about it.
