Don't get hit even if you think it is nothing to worry about. Could have been easily avoided by conditioning if it was because he was to tired or proper mental attitude about avoiding shots no matter what - if you can get out of the way do so - always.

Just about anything can work, just risky.

The thing with Vitor has always been his head. He really is capable of beating Anderson Silva, even when Silva is on a good night, but I doubt he will pull it off because he will be intimidated.

I agree and disagree. Anderson is just better than Vitor, period. I think so at least. His timing, accuracy and skill set is just better than Vitor's. However, I agree, Vitor is the type if he doesn't get you in any danger within the first round, he pretty much folds. He's a dangerous opponent but he has to be dominating from beginning to end in order to win. If you start grinding him out, he gets discouraged.

It seems as though the ability to throw spinning heal kicks has replaced wrestling as the best base skill for mma.
