He’ll stop if he no longer feels the adrenaline…
MMAjunkie Radio interviewed UFC fighter Vitor Belfort this week. Belfort is next set to face Dan Henderson at UFC Fight Night 32. Below are some highlights.
Belfort on when he would stop fighting in MMA: "I believe in joy. When I step into the octagon and I don't feel the pleasure and I don't feel the adrenaline and the purpose, I think it will be time to stop. I made a plan to go into my 40s, so that's kind of the plan. So I like to plan things. I believe the more you plan, the more you succeed."
Belfort on what he would do when he's done with fighting: "Of course, things can change. I'm very open. God will tell me what I have to do, and he will prepare what I have next for me. I love business, and fighting is a business for me. You can only work at things you can have pleasure and appreciation (for), to wake up every day and work hard. That's what I ask God for – 'God, when I finish, just give me something that I have the same type of intensity of being successful, of being tenacious, with determination, dedication, drive, desire, discipline.' I want to apply all the techniques that I learned in martial arts and business. That's how I look at my life. That's how I raise my kids. I believe age is something (where) the body can be dying slowly, but I believe your spirit can be renewed. It's just a matter of attitude and perseverance."
