Vitor Belfort vs. Wanderlei Betting Line | Who’s The Favorite?


Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva are two Mixed Martial Arts Legends. They originally faced each other nearly 14-years ago back in 1998.

In the original meeting it was Belfort who got his hand raised after overwhelming his fellow Brazilian with strikes and getting the TKO victory in just 44 seconds of the very first round.

Fast forward to current date and it would seem as if Belfort is still in his prime, however the chin of Wanderlei is in question and his recent outings have garnered mixed results.

You can’t really factor in the first fight, it was so long ago that it’s almost irrelevant by today’s standards, but recent activity and level of performance is a big indicator that Vitor should be the heavy favorite going into this match.

Is it so?

According to Betus.com Vitor is the favorite and here are the ODDS:

  1. Ruben says:

    No surprises here, I love Wand but his chin is very brittle now, Vitor will finish him with ease, i just hope its not too brutal.

  2. danriverapv says:

    of course thats the Line,but nor i or Wand give a fuck. Hail Axe Murder! OFF WITH VITOR’S HEAD.

  3. ed says:

    I think it will be less than 44 seconds this time wanderleus chin is of glass and vitor has some vicious ko power

  4. Dick Diaz says:

    Wanderlei might die from this fight… the UFC should really keep Wanderlei around for novelty fights such as the Cung Le fight where he can fight big names and stylistically shouldn’t put him in life-ending trouble such as the Leben fight and this. Personally, i think they should have kept Jorge Santiago around… Dream middleweight vs Pride middleweight fight… sigh… i hope Wanderlei doesn’t die from this…

  5. danriverapv says:

    fuck all of you guys. When Wand KO’s him you’ll all shit a brick.

  6. blzkjavn says:

    I hope Wanderlei rips “Feetor”s head off. But he’ll probably get knocked by a serie of punches to the back of his head, Vitor’s trademark.

  7. Nick says:

    I’m just hoping that Wanderlei doesn’t get hurt. I’ve never been a big Wandy fan, but still, I don’t like seeing him get hurt.

  8. Ronda Rousey's Camel toe... says:

    Go WANDI!Goooo!

  9. Tsimanga says:

    - 300 on Vitor is a lock. Easy money there.

  10. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    No surprise here… Wandy could still catch him. He covered up well in the Cung Le fight.

  11. jbeamazing says:

    2 legends but im kind of scared for the axe

  12. Hal Levalear says:

    2 Legends that are some what on their last limb going at it to do a rematch. Wanderlai needs to watch out maybe pick his hands up so he won’t get KOd in 18 seconds. Belfort needs to wear a catchers mask so he won’t take a foot to the face again.

    So my choice here will be Steven Segal

  13. UFC VIDEOS says:

    pretty hyped for this fight

  14. xXCLOSXx says:

    I’m rooting for Wandy on this one, but I have a baaddd feeling about this.

    • Dick Niaz says:

      that about sums it up.

      I don’t even think this fight should have been sanctioned… now before you guys get all War Wand, Wandy can kill an elephant with one wild swinging right hand pride forever blahblahblah…

      I love Wandy. but… he has lost 6 of his last 9, 4 of those by ‘oh shit i hope he’s not dead’ KO and he’s facing a much faster lower mileage fighter with more accurate striking, better agility, better defense and head movement.

      It is hard to imagine this not ending with Wandy KTFO. I HOPE he wins, but it doesn’t seem likely at all.

  15. Enzolorenzo says:

    Vitor wins by punches to the back of the head.

  16. the original steve says:

    vitor wil break that glass jaw

  17. jonesy says:

    this is wando retirement fight for ufc im sure….maybe he begs 1 more…i love wando but his best days are gone

  18. Fuck TRT says:

    I’m surprised.
    Vitor’s gonna win this one. I hope Wanderlei doesn’t get hurt. Just sucks to see the greatest 205 fighter of all time gets knocked out these days.

  19. Secludedly says:

    You don’t really need to go to the odds on this one. It’s pretty simple to deduce that Wanderlei is losing easily. Vitor is currently getting better and better, and Wanderlei has the worst record in UFC history. Wanderlei’s chin is made of tipping dominos – one tap and he’s down. I was a big PRIDE Wanderlei fan, but in the UFC, he’s just not there anymore. Not since Henderson was the first in PRIDE to KO him. Ever since, he’s been a delicate baby. Vitor is pushing his way up the ranks again, and may get some redemption against Anderson. He’s two fights or so away from it.

  20. mj says:

    Dont be surprised is Vitor takes him down and subs him. Wand will bang…great, but he also throws first and Vitor loves the straight left. That is what he leads with and thats what Wandys got a problem with. Dont understand this fight, Vitor is top 3 MW and the AM is finished.

    • GET RID OF FITCH says:

      I would say they are prob even on ground but Belfort is still in his prime IMO nad will eventually catch Wandi on chin

  21. Steve says:

    Vitor Is Too Much For Anyone. I Want to see him fight chael sonnen. If sonnen thinks that bisping hits hard wait for belfort to hit you

  22. Zack says:

    Im going with wand for the simple fact that he doesn’t give a fuck. True warrior

  23. Jujitsu Player says:

    Wand is a legnd but is chin is made of glass. Vitor TKO inside rd1. Maybe even the first minute…
