As we’ve seen time and time again. The pressure cooker that is ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ can cause fighters to despise their opponent as they work closely in competition against them. Just as the U.S. version has proven to further grow the animosity between Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber, fellow Brazilian’s Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva have started to have their own quarrels. Here’s what Belfort had to say about his upcoming opponent, Wanderlei Silva.
“I’m expecting the best out of me. I’m only focused on me. I know Wanderlei is a tough guy and he’s gonna come hard, but my arm is gonna be raised that night and he knows that. He’s trying to use his bad attitude to try and impress, but he knows I’m a better man, a better athlete. I’m focused and I don’t need to talk trash about anybody.”
