I would tend to agree. not that it makes him a bad person though.

IMO it isn't so much deviousness as it is just crafty intelligence(if I'm not splitting hairs with that term) . If Vitor loses he is still a solid training partner to have around and there is no potential for a rift between he and Rashad bacause of title fight implications. However if Vitor does win not only does rashad have intimate knowledge of Viot from training with him he also gets a bit of vicarious revenge on JJ by having trained Vitor. He'll especially get that if belfort gets a KO/TKO. I hope that shit happens

Fo. Sho. Fun fight that makes good sense at the moment.
