Awesome, I've always been a big fan of Belfort. I hope the mental is there, then he'll crush anyone !

That guy is still alive? I thought he crawled in a hole and died.

Haha. Sadly, I can't watch Affliction because I have to go to a wedding instead. I think Belfort is in a lot better shape than Lindland though. Lindland put on a poor performance at Affliction Banned.

Either it's a fight with two guys both not good enough to be in the UFC anymore.

Re: Vitor Belfort Trains out of CrossFit Balboa

Well in Lindland's defense, he was ill during his previous Affliction fight, I read about it on mmaweekly right after the fight. And Dana White has mentioned that the reason he's not fighting in the UFC is because most casual fans don't know of him, therefore no money to be made for Dana, or Matt.

Lindland was dropped from the UFC in 2005 because of a debate over a sponsor t-shirt he wore.

Matt looks great right now, mentally and physically. There's some fun training videos of him up on our website, I like "winter workouts #1 #2" and "bulgarian throwing dummies". I've done throwing dummy workouts with Matt before, they are brutal.

Matt is a great wrestler who for whatever reason has never been able to transition it to great success in MMA. I'm a big fan though

A 21 - 5 - 0 record with most of his big losses coming from fights outside of his weight class, fights in the UFC, IFL, Bodog and Affliction, founding one of the best MMA gyms in the world isn't "great success"? Tough crowd.

Re: Vitor Belfort Trains out of CrossFit Balboa

Saw Matt fight Rampage live and thought he had won the fight. I also was a fan of his fight with carlos newton. Not the best in the world but could give anyone a solid run. Not really interested in seeing him fight in teh UFC however.
