Vitor Belfort: Hoping for a Title Shot
"I don't live by desire, I live by dream. What I'm trying to do is climb the mountain again." --- Vitor Belfort, UFC Middleweight Fighter
During an interview at Joe Hand Boxing Gym after his training, Vitor Belfort was asked if he’s thinking of earning another UFC championship belt.
“Sure. I overcome. Nobody’s going to take my dream away. I don’t live by desire, I live by dream. What I’m trying to do is climb the mountain again.”
In 1997, Vitor Belfort won the UFC Heavyweight Championship at 19 years old. Then in 2004, he became the Light Heavyweight king. And if he could capture another title before his career is up, Vitor Belfort could boast of earning titles in three different decades. But to do that, he must get past through Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 133. Moreover, Vitor Belfort is also looking for a rebound after being knocked out at UFC 126 by Anderson Silva.
“It’s part of life. To overcome … you have to overcome something. That was one of the mountains I had to climb. Here I am, stronger than ever, climbing my mountain again and looking for the title shot soon.”
If Vitor Belfort emerges victorious, he will have the reason to think of fighting for a title once more. But as of the moment, just like what he said, it is still a climb.View Article Source »
