Mario Yamasaki Surprised with Anderson’s KO over Belfort

How did it feel to watch so closely one of the most expected fights in all history? To me it was wonderful, great, not only because of the repercussion the fight had in Brazil, but around the world. The whole world was expecting this fight. Vitor was one of the last hopes to defeat Anderson, and you saw what happened... Were you surprised with a knockout on the first round? Did you think it’d last longer? Of course. Until that moment Vitor was winning the fight, he had attacked and taken Anderson down. I thought it’d be an interesting fight, but the kick Anderson did caught everybody by surprise, including Vitor. UFC’s coming to Rio in August. Do you hope to be invited to judge some bout? I’m cheering for them to call me for UFC Rio, and I think they will. It’d be stupid if they didn’t (laughs). The whole world is waiting for this event to happen.

Vitor Belfort wants to fight James Toney in a boxing match

From Vitors twitter: "Dana let me fight James Toney on 6 round box[ing] match I think I can catch him with my speed. Dana [it] will be the 1 boxing match in UFC I promise he will fell my power and we will show the world [that] a UFC fighter can do better." I put the chances of this happening just ahead of Pac vs KJ, which is a just a little bit behind hell freezing over.

Last night's Ultimate Fighter Finale included reference to Shinya Aoki, Bas Rutten and Kevin Randleman from Joe Rogan, while Dana White admitted to targeting Vitor Belfort as a challenger for Anderson Silva. After years of pretending no one else existed in the world of Mixed Martial Arts, is the UFC finally starting to recognize the talent operating outside of their own walls?
