Thread: Vitor Belfort... Spinning heel kick.

    Default Vitor Belfort... Spinning heel kick.

    Definitely worthy of getting KOTN... Winner of Weidman vs Silva surely?

    Wonder how he'll do outside of Brazil.

    Unbelievable kick and rare to see a top fighter getting caught and hurt by anything other than a roundhouse kick these days. Rockhold almost seemed embarrassed during the post fight interview ( I know I used to be if I got caught with a fancy spinning kick in sparring). I can't cheer for vitor anymore due to the trt thing but he isn't making it very easy to cheer for the other guy with his recent performances. Maybe he'll finish his next fight with a hook kick or spinning axe kick?

    I think he has to fight the winner of Weidman/Silva now though, his recent run there is literally nobody else he needs to beat.

    I would even go as far as saying if say Silva wins and they fight again that Belfort would handle him on recent performances. You heard it here first. *I still think Weidman wins*

    He has to fight the winner, and no matter how the 1st fight went he is still a very dangerous fight for Silva. Much better fighter now than earlier in his career he can potentially do that to anyone in the division. Thought he'd win by ko/tko but not like that!

    Thats the thing, anyone who comes on to an MMA board the morning after a show that hasn't watched it needs to give their head a shake

    Agree to an extent

    Still though, putting a result in a headline is just plain dumb.

    Whatever happened to common sense?

    Common sense would be staying offline until you've watched the show.
    I avoided the 'net until after I'd watched the UFC & The boxing because I wanted to avoid spoilers. Same as I used to when Bravo had the pre-taped events a day later on Sunday night.
    If an event has happened people want to talk about it. You want to avoid spoilers stay the hell away for a few hours.

    I learnt the hard way cus if I didn't go on any forums in the morning it'd be on facebook or i'll get text messages. I have to stay up for the fights now if Idon;t want to know the results before seeing the fights
