Report: Vitor Belfort To Fight Matt Lindland For Title 10/11

0

TATAME is reporting that Vitor Belfort will return on Oct. 11th to face Matt Lindland for a championship at Affliction's second show. The article does not state what title they will be fighting for, but whether it be an Affliction title or the WAMMA Middleweight title this should be one hell of a middleweight fight.

From the article:

The knockout over Terry Martin at Affliction’s first edition didn’t only put Vitor Belfort back to victories, but can get him a title fight. Belfort’s broken hand might not be a trouble for his next fight. “The doctor will analyze it, but I may stay four weeks out. I’ll come back in October 11th to fight Matt Lindland for the belt”, told the athlete, that will face the Fbio Nego’s opponent on Affliction’s first event.

“It’ll be a great fight, we’ll see who is the best of the world there”, said Belfort, that guarantees his style will be a problem for Lindland. “I saw his fight with Nego and he’s a warrior… He comes be over you, but I don’t think he has the strength to stay over me”, analyzes Vitor, that wants another knockout on his career. “I’ll go to knock him out… My punches are well-aimed and when it hits he won’t stand”, guarantees Belfort.
