Let Vitor Belfort’s win over an overweight Rumble Johnson be a metaphor for everyone out there. In short, if you’re overweight you will eventually be choked out. If you eat too much poutine, Belfort will dive through your friggin’ bedroom window and choke you out, regardless of what you’re doing. You think those shards of broken glass are going to cut Belfort? Nonsense. Sharpness doesn’t affect Belfort It’s a perk that comes with being one of the greatest Brazilian fighters in MMA history.
It wasn’t a cakewalk for Belfort. Rumble’s plutonium-laced gloves connected to Vitor’s face a number of times in the first round, resulting in a rather nasty right eye. However, Belfort managed to prevent the takedown on a number of occasions and in the final sprawl of the fight, Belfort managed to take Johnson’s back and sink in a rear-naked choke with just eleven seconds left in the first round.
With Anthony Johnson coming in at 197 lbs for a middleweight fight, we’re not sure what’s going to happen with him after tonight. However, props to Vitor on a stunning win over a very tough opponent tonight in Brazil.
