Just google "Priscilla Belfort kidnap" and you will find whatever you want to know. Here, I did it for you.

So are you a newb or have you just been living under a rock the past 3 yrs?

Not everyone follows the personal lives of fighters.

And kidnappings are rather common in Brazil from what I hear. I worked with a girl who was kidnapped twice in her life. They usually ransom you back to the family for a small amount of cash, or just rape you and kill you. Its a hell of a place.

No offence to Vitor but he's still fighting he can't let his past be something that hinders him in the future if he wants to get back to the top. I think alot of people play on this but all in all I think he is a good fighter who hasn't fufilled his potential for whatever reasons, thus now he is just another B level fighter. No disrespect to his personal issues whatsoever.

/sigh

Perhaps he just hasn't spent time on lots of MMA message boards over the last couple years? There are fans who just watch all the events but aren't part of an online community. A kidnapping in Brazil isn't the kind of thing to make North American headlines. Apologies on the behalf of Waylon if he hasn't reached your level of knowledge yet

Actually, it was a serious question. I meant no disrespect by "newb", just if he was a new fan. If you've been following the last couple years it's been nearly impossible to miss. it was a huge news story. Vitor even came out w/ her pic on his T-shirt at a UFC fight once (Eastman maybe?). Seriously, this story was as big in the MMA community as what Dick Cheney shooting a guy in the face was to the US.

Waylon, my apologies if I offended you as it was unintentional. I even googled it for ya.

If you had been following MMA has you say you would Know he came out with the Picture of her on his shirt at his 2nd fight with Randy.

Try not to flame newbs. They are the future intelletucals.

And I'm sure you knew that exactly off the top of your head w/ no research whatsoever. Whatev... I knew it was one of the 2 fights where "the Old Vitor" returned. After seeing X many fights the events tend to blend together and quite frankly I haven't given a crap about Vitor since 2002.
