Vitor Belfort vs Anderson Silva

Posted by: Aries in Untagged  on  


This could be the match up people, that will show the best middle weight in the world.

Anderson silva is undefeated in his last 11 fights, his last lost was to Yushin Okami by DQ. He has shown some real improvement in his boxing and wrestling. His striking is so accurate, and deadly, it's very beautiful.

On the other hand Vitor Belfort is making his return to the UFC. There's no doubt in my mind he is a top contender. Since making his debut at middle weight he is undefeated in two fights.  Win, lose or draw his fight aganist Rich holds no guarantee of set backs for his run at a title shot. What stands in his way are the contenders. Yushin Okami, Wanderlei Silva, Nate Marquardt, Dan Henderson, hell I'll even say Yoshihiro Akiyama.

It'll be a tough one to call. Vitor has the stand up and the ground game. He competed in Abu Dahbi and Boxing, so he's well rounded. Anderson silva has competed in jiu-jitsu competions and Muay Thai fights, even in Boxing. Can Vitor's boxing cancel out Anderson's Muay Thai? Well he canceled out Gilbert Yvel, who trains at Golden Glory in Holland, who is taller and heavyier so maybe. To me it's who will be better on the ground, both Brazilian Jiu-jitsu black belts, Silva under Minotauro Nogueira and Belfort under Carlson Gracie (R.I.P.). Nogueira is also a Carlson Gracie black belt as well.

So what'll happen if these two meet?
