Belfort waxes poetic after win, slagging Chael Sonnen and calling for rematch with Jon 'Bones' Jones. Photo via screenshot.
The UFC on FX in Sao Paulo, Brazil, was underscored with a pair of ground fights, a fight that was stopped at least six elbows too late, and two great headlining fights.
Brit Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping was hoping for a sound win over future hall-of-famer, Brazilian Vitor ‘The Phenom’ Belfort, since UFC president Dana White promised The Count a shot at Anderson Silva if he came out with a win. It wasn’t meant to be.
Bisping came out with masterly use of distance and footwork, making Belfort, a veteran with vast experience, look off on his timing. Belfort has great speed, incredible KO power. Ten of his wins in the UFC averaged 2:00 minutes. Bisping, on the other hand, can and does finish with KOs and TKOs, but with volume since power is not something he possesses in excess.
