How big of a celebrity is Vitor in Brazil? How about Anderson?

Are Vitor and Anderson household names? How popular are they compared to Brazilian football/soccer stars or famous Brazilian actors/singers?

I'm asking the Brazilian members of this site

I heard that after Anderson clowned and lost to Weidman a lot of Brazilians didn't like him anymore so Vitor is the most popular fighter in Brazil right now. I'm not a Brazilian but imagine how big Anderson/Vitor 2 in Brazil would be.

I thought Vitor was a bit more mainstream in Brazil due to his wife and him appearing in reality shows. Would like to hear from those in Brazil.


Edit: Guess not I didn't know Anderson Silva had 4 million Twitter followers.

Anderson was massively promoted as "The GOAT" with the UFC coming to Brazil, so he's a pretty big name but he was kinda manufactured into that.

Vitor was a big name before UFC came back to Brazil and probably will continue to be well known after he retires from MMA.

Big enough to lick his wife's feet on national TV.

Twitter followers can be easily faked. He has like 600,000 - 700,000 real followers. http://fakers.statuspeople.com/
