    U shut ur FACE
    Really don't think who they have as a guest/celeb trainer at this point makes any difference in what the outcome of this fight will be... I haven't seen enough of the new Vitor to really favor him in this fight against a fighter such as Anderson but i'm certainly not ruling him out by any means.

    If I had to choose I say Anderson by KO RD 2

    I dunno man, I just don't think Vitor would have a clear advantage over Silva on the ground. Sure, Silva didn't do a very good job of working back to his feet against Chael at all, but Chael is a dominant powerful wrestler, whereas Vitor isn't it. I can't see Vitor being able to hold Silva down anywhere near as well as Chael, or even trying to. Vitor's hand speed and accuracy is as close to Silva's as you'll find at 185, and there is a real chance of him catching Silva in the stand-up.

    belfort has some good hands, no questioning that. and if he tags anderson it will be interesting. but belfort hasnt fought a striker like anderson lately (if ever). plus, we have all seen vitor time and time again not live up to the hype. its been awhile since his last fight against ace.........

    i just see anderson countering, getting in close and kneeing his way to a victory.
    I agree man, I think Vitor has some great hands, but I see Anderson's dynamic muay-thai skills really being an advantage in this fight, so he can stay unpredictable and pick Belfort apart.

    I'm with you on at one man, at least that's what I'd like to see(although I am a big Vitor fan too, so i wouldn't be that upset if it went the other way!)

    Yeah by Couture once I believe. I also think he had a fight stopped by cut which technically counts as a TKO.

    I really like Belfort; he has incorporated really slick footwork into his striking. The way he found Franklin's chin so easily really impressed me because Franklin is still one of the better strikers out there and the only guys to handle him on the feet before Vitor were Silva and Machida.

    Belfort has grown a lot since the days of getting picked apart by Liddell and grinded out by Couture and Ortiz, and I think he would easily beat all of those guys now. I don't think Tyson is coaching Belfort, I think it's more of an inspirational thing, having a fighting legend imparting his wisdom on a guy at the apex of his career.

    Vitor via vicious and somewhat scary looking over hand right hook at 1:37 seconds of the second round.
