Despite the betting odds in favor of Jon Jones (16-1) defeating Vitor Belfort (21-9), fellow Brazilian Wanderlei Silva (34-12-1-1 NC) sees the challenger as a threat because of his hands
“I think Vitor can surprise everyone,” said Silva on Ground and Pound TV. “I think he’s going to use his hands and maybe beat him. He’s strong and it’s a fight.”
Vitor defeated Silva in their only meeting at UFC Brazil: Ultimate Brazil in 1998, which also marked Silva’s debut for the company.
