Vitor Belfort pre-fight interview

In 2013, “The Phenom” Vitor Belfort has scored

back-to-back head-kick Knockout of the Night bonuses in his native

Brazil. On the eve of his third main event bout this year in his

home country, Belfort talks with FOX Sports’ Heidi Androl

about how he judges his evolution as a fighter and what’s in

store for his rematch with Dan Henderson.

“I believe everyday is a winning day and it’s a

process,” states Belfort. “That’s what I live

for. Better husband, better father, better athlete, better

businessman. That’s how I roll my life.”

Since returning to the UFC in 2009, Belfort is 5-2 inside the

Octagon with all wins by stoppage (4 KO/TKOs, 1 sub) and his two

losses were in battles for belts (middleweight and

light-heavyweight). As Belfort prepares to continue his quest for

another title shot while avenging his 2006 decision loss to

Henderson, “The Phenom” tells how his goal is to simply

have a good performance – the rest isn’t up to him.

“He comes forward, he likes to fight, he likes to

scramble,” explains Belfort. “It’s going to be

interesting. I just got to keep alert and do my thing, do my best.

That’s all I want to live is my best in the Octagon and

that’s what I can promise you guys. I’m going to do my

best and the result is in God’s hands.”
