    On Saturday May 18th 2013 these two warriors will go toe to toe in a 1 on 1 head to head battle to the death with the winner possibly getting a chance to fight for the MW championship and the loser being, well, DEAD! :icon_twis

    So what say you Sherdog? Who takes it?








    I did a search for a poll and didn't find one so for those interested in participating here you go. :icon_chee

    This is hard to pick. Vitor is fucking lethal but Rockhold has versatile striking with good kicks and a competent grappling game. I'm gonna go with Vitor, but Rockhold can win this no doubt.

    I've got Belfort. Rockhold is a bit overrated IMO. Just looking at his record, decisions wins over Jacare and Tim Kennedy are his only standout wins from a short resume. Belfort has a TON more experience and has been in there with much more dangerous fighters. Rockhold will not be able to stop Belfort and his only avenue to victory is to run and peck away. Vitor's aggression and experience FTW.

    I never doubt Belfort. If he clips you, its over.

    This.

    Let me also say that it pains me to do so. He's one of the last of a historical era ("my" era, as a fan).

    I just don't see Vitor catching Rockhold early on and at the same time, I see Rockhold maintaining a relatively high pace throughout. Rockhold wins a fairly close decision.

    Indeed.

    It's tough to bet against the man. I think his head is in the right place and it's been that way for a while.

    Hope Rockhold takes this, either by tko or sub late in the fight.

    If you need TRT you shouldn't be fighting.

    Rockhold by decision over a tired Belfort. Vitor's win over Bisping was impressive, and I think he has at least one more big win left in him before he retires. However, as he's shown in the Jones fight (and many others), he's at his most dangerous in the first half of the fight, and I think Rockhold can stay away from the KO shots, to do what Bisping couldn't - use angles and sticking-and-moving to outstrike and tire Belfort for a UD.
