Vitor is much more exciting to watch than Weidman, IMO. Weidman gets a ton if love, which is deserved, but I personally am growing tired of oversized wrestlers.

If Vitor loses, I'm sure he'll retire. He's not going to want to continue fighting with constant drug tests and having to pay for them out of pocket. It's going to cost him a fortune unless he can get UFC to pay the bill.

Weidman doesn't have a "retiring" style. He's an improved version of Tito.

With a good striker like Vitor he'll either grind out a boring decision or get his ass TKO'd.

Holy shit stop the presses
Not just any 37 year old either, a 37 year old with an 18 year career. This is the guy that started fighting before the likes of Liddell, Ortiz, and Couture, and actually started the same year as Coleman and Don Frye. And hes still fighting. his retirement, whenever it comes, should not surprise anyone.

I have no problem with you implying Anderson is a better fighter/finisher than Jones.

If you saw Jon Jones vs Vitor Belfort two years ago, then you've seen a mere fraction of what Weidman will do to him, The Chris is going to unleash BRUTAL ground and pound, enough to shake the earth on VinotsoTRT and will cut, batter, maim. And annihilate Belfort...into RETIREMENT.

Silva, Machida, and now Belfort the Brazilian sweep shall occur on December 8th courtesy of an American Made, homegrown all natural ass whippin'.

Chris Weidman TKO (corner stoppage) before round 4. Book it.
Really going out on a limb eh TS?

Nothing is out of the realm of possibility. Vitor has the ability to KO Weidman early, but if it goes past a round or two, Chris may well give him an exhausting beating on the ground. I'm actually rooting for Vitor to pull off the upset, as he is much more exciting to watch imho.
