I am Brazilian and I can assure you that this will never happen and I am fanatic about both sports but soccer is already embedded in our DNA, and it’s a sport that people from 1 to 100 year old watch and I can’t see that with MMA.

Log in to Reply Kill em All December 16, 2011 Vitor is a great spokeperson for MMA and the UFC Log in to Reply Axe Murderer December 16, 2011 Thats my man right there!! Run Anderson cause he’s coming for you believe that. Log in to Reply GetSome December 16, 2011 Keep pumping roids Vitor. Log in to Reply tobes December 16, 2011 GetSome – you are a ridiculous hater. If you knew anything about Belfort you’d know that he’s come back from tremendous adversity in his life and is a role model athlete. Honestly, there are some fighters who’ve taken roids that I despise, but I think Belfort was obviously going through a tough time in his life and made a mistake.

Log in to Reply MANDINGO December 17, 2011 Belfot is talking out of his ass. Never in a million years will MMA or UFC how Vitor put it will out grow Football (soccer). Kids in brasil are born with a ball at there feet not with a gi. Plus who wants to watch two grown sweaty men in speedo trunks roll around in a cage?? Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick December 18, 2011 @MANDINGO We could say the same about soccer.Who wants to see 100 guys kicking a ball in massive field and never shoot on the goaler or score for 3 hours??Its all about the opinion and taste of people.Some people like physical sports and other people like to watch a sport to fall asleep.
