Training for his fight at the Cage Rage 21, which will be held on April 21st in , Vítor Belfort enjoyed the opportunity to analyses the bout between Wanderlei Silva and Dan Henderson on last Staurday (24) at Pride 33. He already faced both athletes; he defeated Wanderlei Silva by KO at UFC and lost to Henderson by unanimous decision at the first edition of Pride Las Vegason last year, so Belfort was already waiting this result.

I didn’t get surprised. I was already expecting this result, because Wanderlei hasn’t got a good chin. Wand didn’t do any mistake, but Henderson was better than him. The KO doesn’t lie, nobody can complain. Henderson showed that has much more game than Wanderlei has – said Belfort , who also analyzed the bout of Rogério Minotouro against Romeau Thierry Sokoudjou. “Rogério didn’t have any luck. He wasn’t KO’d at the second round that happened in the beggining of the bout. It happens. It is obvious that if the bout was for the ground, Rogério would submit him”, evaluated the black belt.

Vitor also talked about his adversary at Cage Rage 21 e how he is trainin for the bout. “I don’t remember his name, but I know he is a real Italian, a European champion. I will fight to win this bout, because he is a tough fighter, he is good on the Wrestling game and has a heavy hand”, told Belfort.
