Vitor Belfort was once the most feared fighter in the early days of UFC. His speed and strength was almost unmatched inside the cage. Over the years Belfort went from top of the heap to middle of the pack. But with a couple of high profile wins and a little bit of luck the Brazilian gets a shot at the Light heavyweight title.
Belfort has been fighting at Middleweight for the past few years and how he’s stepping in the cage against one of the most dominant Light Heavyweight fighters in UFC. Jon Jones has already put away four former UFC Champs with ease. It will be difficult for Belfort to put up an effective strategy that Jones hasn’t already seen. If there’s any chance that Belfort can pull off an upset he’ll need to pressure Jones from the opening bell. He’ll need to use his speed to close the distance and press the champ up against the cage. Beflort is a great fighter, but in the end Jones will finish the fight before it reaches the championship rounds.
