Vitor Belfort: It May Be Hard To Believe I Can Get Better, But I Will

Middleweight contender Vitor Belfort is looking to get back into title contention and since a loss to Jon Jones at UFC 152, he has strung together three solid performances in the Octagon, defeating Michael Bisping, Luke Rockhold, and most recently, Dan Henderson.

When he returns to action in his next bout, the former UFC Champion tells MMAFighting.com he will be even better:

“I’ll be even better when I return to the Octagon. I know it’s hard to believe that I can get even better than this, but I will. I’ve been training hard, and there are a lot of things that I haven’t done yet. My best is yet to come.”

Belfort also talked about a possible rematch with Anderson Silva, who knocked him at at UFC 126:

“It’s important that you accept the facts,” he said. “He surprised me with a kick, and a true champion needs to accept what happened. We can’t control the results, but I can control what I will do about it. The last fight doesn’t mean that the next fight will end the same way.”
