In an interview on Brazilian channel Sportv last January, former UFC champion Murilo Bustamante confirmed it: Amid the numerous stars from Carlson Gracie Team with whom he has trained, Vitor Belfort was one of the most phenomenal when it comes to punching power, explosiveness and skill.
That’s a good deal of praise for today’s birthday boy, who is now recovering from shoulder surgery.
But what is it that keeps the 33-year-old Vitor Belfort’s hands, one of his main attributes as a fighter, so quick? He himself offers the explanation in the video below.
Happy birthday, and have a great return to the Octagon soon.
