Vitor Belfort may be a huge underdog going into UFC 152, but that hasn’t slowed him down. A behind the scenes video shows Belfort enduring grueling workouts en route to Bones. If you thought for a second that Belfort wasn’t taking this fight seriously, you need to see this video!
[adinserter name=”366 right”]This dramatic video was posted by Ryan Loco and goes inside of Belfort’s training camp with the Blackzilians. MMA fans will recognize Rashad Evans and Alistair Overeem (who looks surprisingly smaller than usual) training with Vitor and evaluating his chances against Jon Jones. Needless to say, the Blackzilians think they have themselves a winner.
This video is nice to see after rumors started buzzing in recent days about Belfort possibly being hurt. Those rumors were found not be true and it appears from this video that Belfort is not only healthy, he is a man possessed with pulling off one of the biggest upsets in MMA history. I love the intensity from Belfort that comes through this video.
Keep in mind that Belfort has taken this fight on short notice. It is impressive to see the endurance Belfort has developed with such little time to prepare a full camp. While there are a lot of combat sports athletes who always look better in training than they do in action, I have to say that I am a little more of a believer in Belfort after seeing this video. There is something about this video that makes me want to pull for him even more in the title fight.
[adinserter name=”366 left”]I have seen some websites giving Belfort as high as +625 odds going into Saturday. When you consider that Belfort is not only a former champion, but is 7-8 in his last eight with his only loss coming against Anderson Silva, you really have to wonder how accurate these odds are. As someone that has seen Vitor fight since the beginning, I think he has a damned better shot of beating Jones than most including any of Jones’ previous challengers.
Whether Vitor gets thrashed or not is something we will find out Saturday. Yet I can tell you one thing for sure after watching this video. The man is ready for war!
