Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by Todd Martin, a featured MMA contributor for Sherdog.com and The Wrestling Observer.
Ahead of Vitor Belfort’s improbable light heavyweight title clash with Jon Jones at UFC 152, Breen and Martin discuss the curious career of “The Phenom,” from his role as MMA’s first wunderkind to his late-career resurgence. The two examine how truly strange the Brazilian’s rollercoaster career has been, how public perception of Belfort has shifted wildly over time and how Belfort serves as a microcosm of MMA history.
The duo also discusses some of the stranger incidents that have occurred through the colorful career of Belfort and how he will ultimately be remembered for his long fighting tenure.
