It hasn't been an easy path back for Belfort since his sister was abducted & murdered in 2004, but he's made it back with a little help from a higher power. "We have words for if you’ve lost your husband, you’re a widow; if you’ve lost your parent, you’re an orphan; but if you lost your child, they don’t have a name for that. That’s so painful that they don’t have a name for that. I think there is two ways to get to God, through love or through pain. Mine was through pain. I can see now that through that tribulation, I’m a new man. I’m a strong man. I’ve matured. I’m not perfect. I still struggle with many things, but it’s a process. I’m in the middle of the process and every day I try and prove myself so I can fight through that process, which never ends."

How can you not want to cheer for this guy? I remember his fight with Randy (the one where he cut Randy's eye) and ended up winning by doctor stoppage, he came out wearing a missing T-Shirt with his sisters face printed on it, it gave me goosebumps.

I'll be cheering hard for Vitor, and would love to see him win this fight.

The perseverence will pay off for Vitor

Anderson's run will come to an end.
