Vitor Belfort says he was winning his UFC 126 fight against Anderson Silva

Vitor Belfort says he was winning his UFC 126 fight against Anderson Silva

I wish roaches would chill out and stop invading the plates in my room. I’m not done with that food yet, that’s why it’s still in my room. Roaches are like that friend that just takes a french fry from your plate even though you didn’t give him/her permission to take a french fry. They feel obligated that since you have an abundant number of french fries, it won’t make a difference if they take one. I’m the type of guy that eats all my french fries. That last french fry is going to make a difference in my life. Don’t rob me of that.

There’s another person that feels robbed, and according to an interview on TATAME magazine, Vitor Belfort says he was winning his UFC 126 bout against Anderson Silva until Anderson ‘got lucky’.

I believe you only get lucky if you train. He trained and got lucky. But I think it’s something that if he tried to do in ten fights he would only be succeeded once (laughs).

“I was doing fine on the fight, I was winning it, but I wasn’t lucky to fit that punch, I missed it, that punch on the ground was really powerful. If it hits him… But it didn’t and his kick hit me hard, it was his night, I can’t help it. Everything I promised to do, I did.”

“The game plan was exactly that because I trust my exchange. I knew that it was the thing he’d bring that would be more dangerous, his legs, and he used them, his kicks… The fight didn’t develop a lot, right? When I noticed it, when it had really started, I was winning but when I stopped, for just one second, it cost me the fight.”

Quick, can someone explain the difference between ‘luck and ‘God’s will’? Perhaps it was God who enabled that kick to land on Vitor, unless God was on Belfort’s side and was ousted by that mysterious force known as luck. However, one would think that God would have the ability to overcome the force of luck, ah well. What do I know, I’m just a guy that has roaches crawling all over his dinnerware. [Source]
