As is the case with most matchups between two veterans, Vitor Belfort and Gegard Mousasi are scrapping tomorrow night in the co-main event of UFC 204, and, well, yeah, this would’ve been an awesome fight five years ago.
But whatever, it’s happening now, in 2016, and we’ll get to see a tamer, less testosterone-y Belfort bring his explosive striking to bear against the measured, accurate striking of Mousasi.
Both men have accomplished great things in the sport; both have had some disappointing losses. However, the beauty of this impending scrap is that it could literally end in the blink of an eye. Wouldn’t that be exciting?
Anyway, here’s a little preview vid to get your juices flowing.
