It seems that the Axe Murderer is not only looking to put a hurting on Chael Sonnen, but also already planning vengeance against next in line for the UFC middleweight belt, Vitor Belfort. The two fought back in 1998 at UFC in Brazil where Vitor was able to pull out an early first round KO of Silva. Recently words were exchanged in the press that Silva would like to settle in the cage.
“The war has started. I’ll catch you, understand bro? I’ll catch him because our first fight did not prove anything really; it was a technical error and also a lucky moment. He knocked me out quickly. That loss is stuck in my throat and I will turn it over. I am a different fighter now and this time the one who is going to do the knocking out is me. I’ll beat him badly. I’m already preparing myself for this bout. I’m acting on his mindset. Everybody knows he is strong but is psychologically weak. Everybody knows he goes to bits before going in to fight, so I’m damaging his mind already.”
