Anyone looking forward to this card?
I'm not particularly interested in the main event. I'm much more excited about Belfort vs Johnson.
Belfort is the perfect match up for Johnson. Some say it is a little bit too early for Johnson to face Belfort. But me think not. I see it 50/50. Anything can happen.
Belfort, is as big as Johnson, is more experienced and consistent as a striker with fluid explosive hands and impressive ground game. Not as strong and as fast as he used to be though. Big moral plus, he's fighting in his native Brazil.
Johnson is more powerful and aggressive, and a well rounded kickboxer with great wrestling abilities . Also he's got a bigger reach over Vitor. With his deadly head kicks.
Big fan of Vitor here but the only way he can win this fight is to finish Johnson quickly as Rumbles can take this fight anywhere he wants to. He won't want to stand with Belfort for too long, probably will go for a series of takedowns and attempt some submission, or pounding, just to tire Vitor out.
Either way, one of them will win by TKO. Ay caramba! This fight can go anywhere!
It's going to be a fun. The only thing I'd hate if it turns into a slug feast.
