UFC 126 Predictions
UFC 126 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 5, 2011 will headline two dynamic strikers in the middleweight division. Will it be Vitor Belfort's time to shine?
UFC 126 at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas will headline two dynamic middleweight strikers: Vitor Belfort and Anderson Silva. Anderson Silva will put his 12-winning streak on the line, as he faces fellow Brazilian, Vitor Belfort. It seems that the middleweight championship fight on February 5 has all the makings of an explosive event, as both fighters possesses pedigrees of sheer dominance. But a striking bout may only be witnessed by fans, if and only if both fighters enter the Octagon with the same brilliance that they had during their prime.
Anderson Silva must step on the mat, and approach the UFC 126 championship fight, with the tactical precision that has reigned his division for the past four years. He must challenge his contender with a myriad of kicks, knees, punches, and brutal Muay Thai clinch to keep Vitor Belfort out of balance. In addition to this, Silva must also use his elusive head movement and ability to attack at various striking angles as a fighting strategy.
Vitor Belfort, on the other hand, must unleash his hand speed and precise strikes. His key assets will definitely be his boxing prowess, slick movement and the capacity to hit first. In the end, the fighter that will be able to resurrect their former self will be victorious. However, there is a big chance that UFC 126 is Vitor Belfort’s time to shine. That is if he can bring back the 19-year-old fighter with destructive force and lightning fast hands.
