UFC 126 Bet Pick: Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort

Anderson Silva has won 12 UFC fights in a row and needed a dramatic 5th round comeback against Chael Sonnen to hold onto his belt. Can Vitor Belfort create a solid game plan like Sonnen and Dan Henderson that can place Silva on the mat and grind out a victory. Vitor Belfort is on a five fight win streak but his last fight was 16 months ago that did not go past the first round. Belfort has fought the cream of the MMA when he was younger but his last 5 opponets have not been top tier competition. Silva will be prepared for Belfort and “The Phenom” will be the best striker that he has faced.
