UFC 126: Silva vs. Belfort Weigh Ins
Friday February 4, 2011
Vegas

Belfort in an interview the day before the weigh in: 

“I just know one thing, when you say silly things, when you do silly things, it’s because you’re worried and you’re trying to wear a mask…….The way I fight, and the way I am, I have respect. I just need to wear one mask, myself.”

Belfort the day after the weigh in:


“His actions speak louder than his words. I think he respects me. I just think he wears the mask, trying to intimidate me……He can see it in my eyes. I’m on fire. I’m not getting intimidated by anyone.”

Think Silva got inside Belfort’s head ?
