“The good thing is Vitor Belfort is the perfect warm-up for Anderson Silva. He’s a southpaw, Anderson’s a southpaw, and they’re both incredible strikers. My skills against a southpaw have definitely improved a lot in this training camp. At the start of the camp I was struggling because things do change due to the stance. But now I’m over those problems. Fingers crossed I get the business done, and then I’ve had the perfect tune-up for Anderson Silva.”
UFC middleweight fighter, Michael Bisping, has basically downgraded Vitor Belforts Elite status to nothing more than a tune-up for the promised title shot a victory will get him this Saturday.
Is it just pre-fight hype or is Bisping underestimating “The Phenom”?
