“I feel just fine about the matchup. He can’t do nothing that I can’t do. Anything he thinks he can do, I think I can do better. I think it’s a pretty even matchup. He’s fast, I’m fast. He’s powerful, I’m powerful. It’s going to be a fight that really determines who’s the man at the end of the day. Either one of us can get dropped, so it’s going to see who has the most heart. … All I know is I’m going to win.”
Anthony Johnson tells mmafighting.com that he thinks he is better at every aspect of MMA when comparing his skills to that of his UFC 142 opponent, Vitor Belfort.
Having only fought in the UFC’s welterweight division, Johnson is not only taking a step up in weight, but also a step up in competition as Vitor is known as one of the best in the business.
Will “Rumble” be able to halt the progress of his Brazilian opponent and make a case for contender status with one outing in the UFC’s middleweight division, or will Belfort show why he is a top 10 adversary come fight night?
