0

During a recent appearance on Submission Radio, MMA legend Renzo Gracie recalled the time Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort nearly came to blows in a hotel lobby in Abu Dhabi.

“The second one was between Vitor Belfort and Anderson Silva. They’re in the lobby of the hotel in Abu Dhabi and they’re arguing, they’re almost fighting,” said Gracie. “I looked at them and I say ‘Boys, just to make things clear, if you guys fight I’m not pulling you guys apart. I will sit and watch because I’d love to see this fight,’ and you know so they stop arguing right away and both walk away (Laughs).”

Gracie returns to competitive jiu-jitsu against longtime rival Kazushi Sakuraba in the main event of Metamoris 5. For more on their match, which takes place this weekend, watch Countdown to Metamoris 5: Gracie vs. Sakuraba.
