September 10, 2012 11:41 am by Pedro Carrasco

“Me and Vitor Belfort are from different generations of fighting. I really believe that in my short career, I’ve already fought a lot tougher opponents than he has. I feel like I’ve had more championship caliber fights than he has. I’m ready. I’m just really excited to fight Vitor Belfort, mainly because he’s a southpaw. The last time I fought a southpaw was Lyoto (Machida) and I got punched pretty good. I’m really anxious to do a better job against another dangerous southpaw and to look better than what I looked before against Lyoto.

He’s a boxer/jiu-jitsu fighter. His versatility is not as good as mine. Where he lacks versatility he does have experience and physical strength. He’s a winner, I’m a winner. He’s a dominant guy, I believe that I dominated my competition. It’s going to be a magnificent display of mixed martial arts.”

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones says his UFC 152 opponent Vitor Belfort lacks versatility, but is a proven winner. Watch UFC 152 to witness what Jones says will be a “magnificent display of martial arts.”
