    Default Vitor Belfort wants to replace Lyoto Machida in UFC 175 main event

    Vitor Belfort wants to replace Lyoto Machida in UFC 175 main event
    http://www.mmafighting.com/2014/4/26...-they-lose-now


    "I did all the tests that Nevada requires," Belfort told MMAFighting.com. "I did it on my own, and I passed them all. There is nothing in my system anymore. God has blessed me. Iím ready now, and Iím waiting.

    "Since they canceled (Weidman vs. Machida) in May, there is nothing else to do. Give me what is mine."

    Belfort is not officially cleared by the NSAC yet, but he plans to meet with the commission "soon" to ask for a license.

    "Iím doing it really soon," he said. "The important is that Iím doing everything by the rules."

    Weidman vs. Machida is signed for UFC 175, so Belfort expects to fight the winner of this fight later in 2014, although he knows he might need to fight one more time before challenging the champion.

    "Anything can happen in the UFC," he said. "Dan Henderson will fight for the title if he wins his next fight. Anything can happen in the UFC. I have to fight and I have to win. Thatís what matters.

    "Iím not worried about who wins that fight, actually," Belfort said of Weidman-Machida. "Iím focused on what I have to do every day. I just trained today, now Iím here (at Arnold Classic Brazil), and Iím going to train again tomorrow morning. Thatís what I do."

    Even with TRT off the table, Belfort expects to continue impressing inside the Octagon.

    "Everything was an excuse to my opponents, and they wonít have it anymore," he said. "Itís the opposite now, they will be at an advantage. (I used) TRT to be at their levels. They will lose now and wonít have any excuses."

    Aha, just like Overeem that was doing the tests with his own doctor in Holland and passed them all.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    Given the time constraints between now and my proposed next bout in May, I have determined not to apply for a license to fight in Nevada at this time.

    He's such a strange guy...

    But I do like watching him fight. He's never in a boring match.

    I just rep'd you in agreement but then I realized he is talking about them canceling the fight in May with Machida because of Weidman's injury not him being removed from the card.
    "DO YOU THINK I'M JUST GOING TO SIT THERE AND LET YOU KILL ME JON???"

    Yeah, I just realized the same thing. I was confused because the Machida/Weidman fight is still on, but didn't realize he was talking about the May timeline.

    Ö that just sounds weird. Isn't his wife a porn actress or something like that? Seems like a weird choice of mates for a "religious" person.

    Yeah and I think they posed naked together in a Brazilian photo shoot for a magazine.

    Culturally, Brazil is quite different than the us with respect to nudity and sex.
