    Wow, i never knew about his missing sister, must've been hard to deal with.

    Got a lot more respect for him now, when my cat ran away i could't focus on anything else heh.

    Edit: so it turns out she was murdered? I tried to read up on it and they had found clothing belonging to her but no body?

    I've always liked Vitor, but the TRT fiasco did dampen my enthusiasm for him.

    Small wonder why he went through shitty period in his professional career. Fights are on the back burner when you have a missing loved one.

    Nice to see Vitor getting some credit around here.

    Dude has had one hell of a road and is still kicking. Ahem.

    Those are some big struggles to have to go through.

    Hope we get a new champ in February.

    I've watched Vitor since ufc 12. The guy is awesome! He has NEVER done anything to warrant some of the shit he gets from fans around here...

    Suddenly the Jesus thing makes sense. It's probably his way of coping.

    Among non MMA fans? He is 100% right.

    Vitor was the only "Vale Tudo" household name until that front kick. And because of a reality show he took part.
