Saw it on "UFC "LIVE"" on bookface. Doesn't make sense to me but what does these days?

Interesting match up for sure.

I hope Vitor knocks Machida out even worse then Shogun did.

That was out of nowhere, still would rather the order go Wanderlei, Mousasi, Hendo, Shogun or Rogerio for a fight with Vitor, but Machida ain't bad either.

I love this fight. Interested to see if Machida can avoid those bombs for three rounds.

This is a good match up, but I think Machida's style of fighting will be ideal in this fight

I'm picking Machida to win this one.
Belfort hasn't shown the leg kicks of Shogun or the magical takedowns of Phil Davis.

Apparently Vitor's good wifey wants the "fight" at a catch weight of 218 pounds.....or....NO DEAL!

Very strange fight IMO. Vitor passed on all those other fights, but wants to fight Machida. Weird logic.

Either way, I've got Machida.

Doubtful Vitor catches Machida before Machida knocks him out, but I would watch this fight....hints of Machida going after 185 belt soon.

Is this going down in Brazil? If so how are we going to have Machida tested for urine in his system? Can't let him get an unfair advantage!

Machida isn't gonna KO him, he'll be too busy running around the cage trying not to get KO'd

Dana was saying he likes this to co-main 167 @ the MGM... how the hell is Vitor gonna be allowed to fight in Vegas all TRT'd up? Pretty sure he's not welcomed by the NSAC... I hope Machida kicks him in the face if it does go down.
