Vitor Belfort Says The Chael Sonnen vs. Wanderlei Silva 'TUF: Brazil 3' Brawl Embarrassed Him
Posted by Larry Csonka on 04.15.2014



- Vitor Belfort recently wrote about the Chael Sonnen vs. Wanderlei Silva 'TUF: Brazil 3' brawl. Here is what he had to say…

"The cat fight between Silva and Sonnen embarrassed me. Firstly, MMA is not fighting people not prepared inside the Octagon. That's what I do. Secondly, there is no more room for a sport like MMA to accept this behavior when [the sport] has clear rules for anti-sport attitudes both inside and outside the Octagon. Third and most importantly, MMA cannot, ever, influence behaviors where the discussion ends in aggression as if this was the appropriate model of behavior. Millions of young people suffer violence inside and outside the school, and the TV cannot be propelling this behavior and athletes must not represent any violent attitude by lack of control, whatever the provocation.

MMA fighters should, as a matter of urgency, be aware that the behavior inside and outside of the octagons can influence millions of people for better or for worse, and I chose influence for good because MMA also picked this way. Anything outside of that is no longer MMA, [and] definitely doesn't represent me."
