Snapshot of the Day: Vitor Belfort and Anderson Silva Staredown

Vitor Belfort - "I’m training, doing my best. I’m sure that this event in February will bring a very intense bout, because it’s hard to study Anderson, he’s an excellent fighter, the best pound for pound in the world. I’ve been sacrificing my days so that, on February 5th, I can do a good show for you."

Anderson Silva - "First of all, I’m really glad I’m fighting a guy like Vitor, even because before I started fighting he already was a champion. He became a champion really young, so it’s cool that we can make these dreams come true, we can do our job and do what we do best: fight and change many things."
