Vitor Belfort is known for a few things. His vicious knockout power, headkicks galore post-TRT, being a pioneer of MMA... and now maybe, possibly he is looking to transcend and enlighten with his new hairstyle.
Plus, the extra pony-tail/rat-tail thing, cause, you know, the cross would just look ridiculous without it.
Belfort included this quote:
"Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord."
Vitor Belfort has utterly obliterated is last three opponents via headkick. Michael Bisping, Luke Rockhold and Dan Henderson all suffered knock out of the night worthy headkicks (the knockout on Rockhold would also win the World MMA Awards' KO of the Year). And other than fighting Jon Jones on short notice, "The Phenom" is 5-0 (all finishes) since he last challenged for the UFC Middleweight Championship.
Vitor Belfort vs. Chris Weidman goes down at UFC 174 on May 24.
