When I think of an exciting fighter to watch, in any sport for that matter, Vitor Belfort always comes to mind. I've seen him since his early UFC days, and I've always been impressed with his power and speed and flat out punching ability. But his name never seems to come up when people name great fighters in the sport despite his good record, and now that he has been booked to fight Randy at the next UFC, I'm excited as hell and no one else seems to care.
Anyone else a big Vitor fan? If not, why, is there something I've missed? Why is he not considered a big name like Tito or Ken?

The lamb has lost his way, we hope he's finally back on the same path. His match with Couture will tell us.

He was one of my favorites at one time...can't explain what happened. My favorite quote from him?
"Boxing and BJJ...that 's all you need!"
...something like that.

I just hope he doesn't break his hands again trying to knock out Couture and his concrete jaw. :)

Randy is going to dominate Vitor. we really havent seen Couture against a solid submission fighter yet. Enson Inoue submitted Couture in under a minute in MMA, so we'll have to see how well Randy can defend against submissions after he throws Vitor on his azz. Vitor sure as hell CAN knock couture out if he comes out with the balls to throw. I think Randy is going to be wise to this and will clinch early.

Belfort rules, he is married to a super hot woman

Does he still have chicken legs?
Anyhow, I heard the reason that he's not considered a great fighter is that if you don't stand infront of him like a moron he can't wail on you with his sickening punching power. Vanderlei tried that and went down in 44 seconds, but I wish those two would fight again.

I really hope the vitor of old is back. His fight with eastman was good. Hopefully even without the power of the fro he will do well against coture.
Found a set of vitor clips, about a min long, shows the eastman fight to give a better idea of his fighting condition (both body and skill).

He is considered a big name.
Randy is gonna spank him hard.
I think its gonna look like a replay of the last time they fought.
