Vitor Belfort Would Have No Problem Punching Wanderlei Silva in His ‘Big Mouth’ Some Day

(Belfort has no problem with Brazilian on Brazilian crime.)

During an interview with Tatame earlier this month, number one UFC middleweight contender Vitor Belfort was asked to respond to recent remarks made by Wanderlei Silva that Anderson Silva is going to, "beat the hell out of ‘The Phenom’" and let’s just say he wasn’t overly impressed.

"I don’t think anything, he’s a spectator and he can think whatever he wants to. If you have a mouth, you can say whatever you want and Wanderlei has a big mouth. But it’s about cheering, everyone can cheer for their favorite, and the important is to be respectful and know how to choose the right words," Belfort said. "In February I’ll have my chance for the belt and let’s see how it’ll be."

What’s interesting is Belfort, who mentioned again in the interview with the Brazilian magazine that "The Spider" is the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, made similar comments about Silva’s manager Ed Soares being a clown with a big mouth and he was contacted by the sometimes UFC translator to clear the air. According to Soares, he gave Belfort similar advice about being respectful in his expressing opinion as Vitor gave "The Axe Murderer."

I always though Brazilians stuck together in MMA. Then again, Chuteboxe and Brazilian Top Team were like the Crips and the Bloods back in the day, so I guess it isn’t THAT surprising.

Never liked Vitor for some reason. A little too g-zusy for my tastes and not in a funny way like Diego. Also He always comes off a having a wierd sense of entitlement. All his big wins are when he was on the horse meat and gummy bear juice. Plus no heart = Anderson via rapechoke in honor of Wandy. Chute Boxe for life.

Vitor KOs the Wandy of today. I hope he kills Ed in the process.

@ Bryan F, where can I get a ticket?? I'd put Anderson and Shogun 1 and 2, but I can think of about a thousand reasons why I could choose any one of em.
Damm this would be a great discussion to have over a case of beers.
And anyone who thinks its all love and cooperation in Brazilian fight circles, cast your mind back to the mutual respect and admiration between the Maia and Silva camps leading into and post "Dancing with the stars' Abu Dhabi

@ Danny Valentine, it was an article on CP a little while ago, details are a bit fuzzy, but the gist of it was Vitor called Ed a douche, Ed contacted him and everything got smoothed over with a phone call, although given Eds track record with telling the truth, anything could have been discussed in the phone call.

@karma can you please link the article or source for your statement regarding vitor "backing down" on his comments. Thanks.

Vitor talks shit about everyone and then when he gets called out on it he backs up. For example when he called out Ed soares, Silvas manager and what not and then retracted his statement. Yeah good times.

Vitor and Wanderlei are my absolute favorite fucking fighters. I don't give a fuck about their current records or career trajectories, I can't help but geek out when either one fights. I just wish Vitor could have had Wand's mentality over the past decade, he would have been a legend.
Anyway, I think a rematch between these two ends the same as the first fight but it probably goes a little longer. If Vitor beats the Spider though, I don't think Belfort/Wanderlei II happens.

Anderson and Wand are okay now, no hard feelings, wand invited him to train on his academy with the nogueiras, but Wand always talks shit about Belfort, he hates everyone who won him like Belfort or Crocop

Brazilian LightHeavyWeight Round Robin Tournament

Machida, Shogun, Wandy, Anderson, and Belfort all have to fight one another at 205. Wins are worth 2 points, draws are worth 1 point, losses are worth 0.

Who takes it with the most points?
Turd Furgeson- October 29, 2010 at 5:27 pm
I don't understand any of this. I thought Wandy hated Anderson.

I guess his defeat at the hands of Vitor out weighs his betrayal at the hands of Anderson?

andoy162- October 29, 2010 at 5:25 pm
i think its going to be the other way around.
Gener- October 29, 2010 at 4:51 pm
Anderson is going to beat the hell out of Vitor.... what's Vitor's issue?

djp1988- October 29, 2010 at 4:45 pm
He's the nicest Axe Murderer I know.
Kimbos Bread- October 29, 2010 at 4:39 pm
Wandy probably didn't mean it in a insulting way. You know, like "tell little Mikey if he doesn't finish his dinner uncle Tony is gonna come over and kick his head in".

^^^ There was a time where if you didn't like Vitor, you didn't like MMA. Then he wasted 10 years of our lives with BS talk about how he was getting back to his old self. Now he kinda is back to his old self, and people don't seem to care anymore.

All that being said, I think Wand was the one telling us about how you talk shit about people and you lose your teeth, or some portugeuse variation of that.
djp1988- October 29, 2010 at 4:22 pm
If you don't like Wandy, you don't like MMA.
Shogun310- October 29, 2010 at 4:18 pm
They already fought, Vitor knocked him out
Smitty- October 29, 2010 at 4:05 pm
That fight would kick sooo much ass, I'd hide in the house for a week!!!
J Akuma- October 29, 2010 at 4:04 pm
Vitor is now dead to me.

It would be as outstanding as it would be unlikely to see Wandy axemurder Vitor's face.

Chael Sonnen just sent Vitor a gift basket.
