Vitor Belfort on fighting Jon Jones: ‘It’s the old-fashioned fighter against the new breed’

An extremely happy Vitor Belfort was a guest on UFC Tonight Tuesday and talked about moving up to 205-pounds to face UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones on Sept. 22 at UFC 152. Belfort called Jones the “best fighter of all time in the history of UFC”. He said it’s an honor for him as an old school fighter to take on the fighter representing the best of the new breed. Belfort knows he is at the tail end of his career but believes he still has some gas left in the tank and looks forward to the challenge. Belfort said he currently weighs 208 pounds, the same weight he was at19-years-old when he won the UFC light heavyweight title. And did I mention Vitor is happy?
