Vitor Belfort drops Akiyama in the first at UFC 133
The Fast-hands of Vitor Belfort (20-9) return, pulling off a first round TKO (strikes) of Yoshihiro Akiyama (13-4) at UFC 133. Belfort quickly came in and landed a barrage of punches that dropped the Japanese superstar early and was able to finish it on the ground.
Belfort will look to return to title contention in the middleweight division after a first round KO at the hands of champion Anderson Silva via front kick back in February. Belfort a long time veteran in the sport, known for his fast KO’s will likely be in line for another title shot if he is able to continue to put on one or two more spectacular finishes.
