    Some of you may already know this, but I just realized it and thought it was interesting. Since returning to the UFC against Rich Franklin in 2009, none of Vitor's fights have gone the distance, win or lose. In 12 fights he has either got the finish or gotten finished.

    With that said, how do you see his upcoming fight against Gastelum going?

    Probably should've retired a while ago, but still

    As old and past it he is now (or the lack of TRT), this legend deserves respect

    Gastelum is a beast but IMO too small to implement the same grappling as Weidman, Mousasi or Jacare at 185. Plus its in brazil and is belforts retirement fight... I see Kelvin trying to stand with him a bit and belfort just going ham on him (kinda like how hendo/boetsch played out)

    I'd be so disappointed but not surprised if Gastelum just took him down and smothered him tho lol

    I think Gastelum will win but you pointed out that it's in Brazil, that does make things more interesting.

    Good call, you're right. I wouldn't have thought that for some reason.

    Gastelum just ragdolls him. I hope he stays at 185 for a while, he looks solid there.

    Stupid matchup.

    Vitor should be fighting guys ranked 15-20 to finish out his career

    I dont respect Vitor for the simple fact that his whole career has been fueled by one thing, if you dont know what that is.....well ask somebody!
