- At this weekend’s UFC 103 press conference, UFC president Dana White discussed the middleweight title picture, which looks to have Vitor Belfort at the head of the line…
On what he saw in Belfort: “The question that I had coming into this fight was, ‘What Vitor are we going to see?'” White said. “The explosive Vitor that goes right after [his opponents], or the Vitor that lays back and couldn’t pull the trigger? He pulled the trigger tonight, and as soon as he hurt [Franklin], he went right in for the kill.”
On the next title shot: Marquardt, Henderson or Belfort: “To be honest with you, the way the last two fights happened with Marquardt and Henderson against Anderson Silva, I think it would be better to see them fight each other, and the winner of that become the next contender,” White said. “I think Vitor is ready to fight Anderson Silva (now).”
Belfort commented: “My new weapon that I’m adding to my game is karate,” Belfort said. “It’s just something that I want to use right now. I was taking my time. I was feeling the fight. As soon as I see something, I make sure I have the zip code, the address and the social security number. I don’t like to throw things away. Sometimes I take my time; sometimes I’m aggressive. But as soon as I start, I make sure I fight. That’s what people want to see.”
