UFC 127 Preview: Vitor Belfort Talks Anderson Silva

On HDNet's Inside MMA:
"It's like I'm set. I'm set for one goal. I'm going to go there and get what belongs to me. The only thing I can do is go there and perform my best."

"I'm not worried if it's Anderson Silva, or if it's any other person in front of me. Whatever is in front of me is what's the most important thing for me right now. Anderson Silva is a great fighter, a great athlete. I've known him for a long time, and I know I have all the ability, but now, what I'm doing is doing my part. I'm training and putting my skills together."

"The fight is definitely going to happen. It's Feb. 5 in Vegas for the Super Bowl week."

"I'm focused – I'm really focused. I'm learning a lot of Muay Thai, learning a lot of elbows, knees and kicks to deal with every weapon that Anderson Silva has."
