The fight between Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort was already confirmed, however, it won’t be in January. It looks as though the “Spider” will need more time to recover from injury and get in combat shape.
According to Belfort, over Twitter, the bout is now set for February.
“My fight will be on February 5. Dana (White) and Lorenzo (Fertitta) said it won’t be any later than this date,” guarantees the fighter.
Excited, Belfort carries on in his preparations for the fight. And to deal with Silva’s striking, Vitor counts on some vital help.
“I’m on my way in my conditioning, I’m getting closer to my objective. Tomorrow depends on how I do today. I’m training with a world champion in muay thai. The guy’s a whiz, really good,” he says.
