Belfort by extreme KO



really I think it would be a great fight with Shamrock winning via sub in the 3rd round, I never saw the Belfort vs Overeem fights were they one sided?

Would love to see this fight. I think i'd take Vitor, i like him at 185.

Also there is F.Shamrock wanting to fight Lawler. Then there should be Lawler vs Vitor.

ok everyone that says shamrock by submission please be quiet cus shamrock said himself he has not been on the ground in 6 years and he doesnt intend to this is why he lost the cung le fight also r we forgetting that vitor is a bjj black belt under carlson gracie? wat makes u think he will get submitted.....

I'm shocked Vitor is calling out Frank. If your going to call someone out why not one of the better MWs. Maybe he is doing it for revenge for the BS Frank pulled in the Renzo Gracie fight.

Belfort was awful impressive the other night against Terry Martin, I think Belfort would get the KO

Cung Le in a standup battle will beat Frank 8 outta 10 fights. But on the ground cmon. and yes I do not think Vitor is on his level, because as far as I have seen from Frank, his standup game has Vastly improved, and His ground work has never been in question.

Frank has never been KO'd, and hasn't been subbed in more than 10 years! 1996 I think.
Vitor on the other hand, has a questionable chin, and has only subbed 2 opponents.

Frank can keep it on the feet Im sure of, and will pull out a UD from dominating the stand up. If not that, then a KO. I can see him subbing Vitor, but I think hes cocky enough that he wont go for it.

and

Frank is not as good as he use 2 be alot of 185ers would smash him


I can say the same about Vitor.

Everyone wants a piece of old Frank.

They know he's a money maker.

Vitor has one decent fight in recent times. It really wasn't that long ago he was fighting in Cage Rage and looking shabby against poor quality opposition.

He did look good the other night, but I think perhaps you're underestimating Shamrock a little, no doubt based on his personality.

Belfort was a great fighter before all of his personal troubles, and with any luck, he will continue to improve, but he ain't ready for Shamrock yet.
