Default UFC 152 title challenger Vitor Belfort: 'I'm fighting the best fighter of all time'

Quote:
"Here I am with 35 years old, 17 years into my career, fighting the best fighter of all-time, in the history of the UFC, a guy who's [considered] the best athlete in MMA," he told FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight." "He's the new breed. I have a lot of respect for the guy, but I'm ready to put up a fight and take the competition to a high level."
Seriously is Dana paying these guys to say this crap?

I Must admit, as much as i like Belfort, this hardly hypes me up for the fight, sounds like he's already preparing to lose.

I hate this new crappy trend where fighters heap all this self deprecating praise on their opponent. Vitor knows whats up. Jones is a stud. But ATG? GTFO out of here that crap. Are the UFC that desperate to sell a fight that fans really don't care much about? Lets be real Vitor ceased being relevant a long time ago. He had a great come back run just before he came into the UFC but the fat ladys singing now. Dudes been around a minute. He hasn't got a hope in hell of beating Jones. Soon as he tastes a few elbows i expect him to wilt fast.

When all is said and done he will go down as one of the best! He's basically undefeated and he's already ran through the LHW division... Rarely losing a round!

I hate this kind of sucky shit. There's being respectful, and then there's just kissing ass. This kind of thing doesn't get anyone excited about the fight, including the fighters.

Ive tried to refrain from boarding the jones hype train till this point but it does say alot when vitor belfort and anderson silva are shitting their pants at the thought of facing you.

Have you guys ever heard Vitor trash an opponent? It's not his style and never has been. Genuinely one of the nicest guys in the sport

Why can't they do it like Randy.

He doesn't say any bad thing but you can sense that he's ready to GnP someone.

I seen that interview on UFC insider or whatever last night. Not one mention of Belfort saying he was going to win, or anything. Talking about how he's going to put on a good performance, he's always in shape, etc. I don't think he necessarily seemed scared of Jones, but he's more than prepared to lose.
Maybe something crazy will happen, but it won't... With Belfort's attitude I'd rather see Sonnen at this point and he has no chance as well.
