    Vitor Belfort is going to knock Anderson Silva out.

    Don't worry.

    He didnt cut 30 pounds in the last 48 hours everybody relax, he'll be alright. No way in hell would anyone in their right mind cut that much weight all at once right before a huge fight and not expect to be totally emaciated.

    Hmm, well I think if Vitor has had to cut this weight in a short period then sure, it's a worrying thing, but if (as Pantomime said) he has cut it gradually with the Dolce diet then I'm sure it won't be a problem. I mean I have a lot of faith in the work Dolce does (please see Thiago Alves) and I don't think cardio will be too much of a problem for Vitor in this fight.

    However, I do agree with the argument that a few guys have put forward about finishing the fight early may be something Vitor will rely upon. Anderson has fought in fights that have had the potential to last for 25 minutes 7 times, and is comfortable at 185 in title fights. If Vitor can overwhelm Anderson early it could cause problems for the Spider, as Silva relies somewhat upon getting his opponents timing/footwork 'down'.

    Oookay, everyone settle down. Vitor started cutting for this fight back in mid-December. He cut 30lbs, starting 6 weeks out, so it's all good.

    From his twitter:

    According to Dolce himself, via his website, the Dolce diet weight cut takes place over a 3 week period. That's better than 4 or 5 days, that's for sure.

    I agree with your entire post. And you're 110% correct with your diagnosis of reverse-Overeemism. Considering how Vitor struggled to make his catch-weight (195lbs) against Franklin, and with that fight ending so prematurely, I have serious doubts about Vitor's ability to swim in the deep waters.

    I think Vitor is a cool guy (much more humble than Anderson) but the longer this fight goes, the better it gets for Spider. I remember Anderson coming up with BS excuses for why he didn't finish previous fights (Leites, Maia) and he claimed he wanted to push himself to go the distance. I didn't believe him then, and certainly not now, but you can't deny that he will have the advantage in the championship rounds.

    Vitor is in shape, no doubt he meant he cut in all 2-3 monthes process, he got randy couture, behind him with good game planner. Anderson is in shape, and all the time he gets guys who are top guns like Franklin, Dan and Forrest, he is aggressive. I am sure fight will not go to 3rd, and with 60% to 40% for spider being favorite.

    It's hard to look at how deflated his pectoral muscles are and imagine that's not a product of quitting steroids.
    Oh man.... if Vitor doesn't piss clean after knocking Silva's mouthpiece into the fourth row I'm gonna be so choked.

    Probably...aka Shane Carwin syndrome. At least you know he's not on them anymore
