"We some headbussaz, we some head bussaz, we'll knock a hata out, we some headbussaz." - Vitor Vieria and the Blackzilians This new Vitor Belfort is one of the scariest fighters I've ever had the displeasure of feasting my eyes upon. The TRT hawk. The Jesus kick that KO'ed Bisping earlier this year in Sao Paulo. And now, the spinning heel kick of faith that rendered Luke Rockhold non responsive last night inside of the Arena Jaraguá. This man is clearly some kind of newfangled testosterone injected demon who thinks he's been sent into the Octagon to do Jesus' work. Or maybe he just happened to run into Wolverine's adamantium stash somewhere buried in Brazil. The reality is folks, love him or hate him, it's Anderson Silva rematch or bust now for this Vitor. If Michael Bisping or Luke Rockhold would've beaten Vitor they would've been next in line. Vitor finished them both in the first round with the greatest KO kick finishes inside of the UFC middleweight division since Anderson posterized his face back in 2011. This Vitor is by far the biggest threat to the Spider's inhuman reign. We'll just have to wait and see what Chris Weidman has to say about all of this. July 6th cannot come soon enough. Check out the video of Vitor Belfort's 16th career KO below. It's by far the most impressive of his storied career thus far. Video: UFC on FUEL TV: Highlights - UFC on FX 8

Like a fine wine, UFC middleweight Vitor Belfort (pictured) appears to be getting better with age. The only problem with that vino is its last two performances are marred in testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).
