    Shaq says one day Vitor approached him and said "hey man I'm a big fan of yours, you should come watch one of my fights". Says he asked "are you a boxer?". Vitor: "No, I'm an MMA fighter". Shaq didn't know what MMA was and went to the fight, in which Vitor "knocked out some guy in 15 seconds". Says Vitor remains one of his favorite fighters, as well as Jon Jones.

    Pretty cool interview, albeit somewhat short. Shaq is the man.

    That was Vitor's debut in MMA and it was outside the UFC in Hawaii.

    Wonder what Shaq would have thought if Vitor loss that fight.

    That must be where he gets his K1 level striking from.

    Awesome to know that. Vitor is my favorite fighter as well. I wish I would have seen him fight live and knocking somebody's head off.
