A couple of things are going on in the header pic for this post. One, UFC President Dana White is clearly checking out Vitor Belfort and his phenomenal package. Two, damn, Chuck Liddell did have himself some abs back in 2002.
This single throwback pic from Belfort may also completely disprove our Chuck post from yesterday. 2002 Chuck would eat 2018 Chuck in a single bite.
But what about 2019 Vitor Belfort versus a 2019 Chuck? A 2019 Tito Ortiz?
We almost forgot Belfort already fought in the UFC in 2018 but he is already eyeing his next payday. At his core Vitor is a prizefighter and he’s in search of his next big game hunt.
What if Golden Boy Promotions finds some measure of success with Chuck vs. Tito part three? What if they hold a second show?
A month away from Chuck vs. Tito brought you by Golden Boy Promotions on November 24th, Vitor Belfort is banking on the show making money so he can swoop in and fight the winner.
Right now it feels like Golden Boy and Oscar De La Hoya is half assing the build to this fight. Maybe that’s how they promote in the boxing world or maybe they will ramp up once the fight draws closer.
If Chuck and Vitor fight in 2019 it will be almost 17 years since they fought at UFC 37.5. Yes, the UFC named an event 1/2 and yes, it was broadcast on Fox Sports Net’s The Best Damn Sports Show Period. We say this every year (2002-2018-???) but what a weird time to be a fan of MMA.
Vitor vs. Chuck or Vitor vs. Tito? Sure, why not.
