Sunday Junkie Entry - Belfort Victory

Here is my Sunday Junkie story that was published on (link on right side under friends section).


Vitor Belfort's dramatic knockout of Terry Martin was one of the highlights of "Affliction: Banned" that has gotten a lack of publicity. It isn't surprising as that weekend featured excellent performances by Fedor Emelianenko, Andrei Arlovski, Josh Barnett, Anderson Silva and Rory Markham. While executing a near-perfect game plan, Belfort effectively counter-punched the ever-charging Martin, defended takedowns and waited for the perfect moment to unleash his will. That moment occurred in the second round as Martin went for a lazy double-leg attempt. Belfort brought a knee strike that connected flush with Martin's head. A dazed Martin needed only a couple more punches before he was out. Like Markham, Belfort didn't need to rush in with extra punches and instead leisurely strolled away knowing he had the victory. It is a sign that Belfort is growing more veteran-savvy as he has matured in the fight game.
