Most of the sane world will never understand what it takes to prepare for a professional mixed martial arts battle. With the requirement of going all-out during camp at an all-time high, it’s imperative these athletes find whatever legal edge they can in order to get their bodies to perform.
In the first installment of Vitor Belfort’s UFC 126 video blog, the middleweight takes fans through a typical training day as he heads into Saturday’s shootout with champion Anderson Silva.
To show you just how different of a breed fighters are, instead of having some Metallica or 2Pac blaring through Xtreme Couture’s speaker system to get him pumped for a hard day’s work, Belfort was bumping Maroon 5’s 2004 hit “She will be loved.”
If one were to get philosophical with it, perhaps the ‘she’ signifies the UFC middleweight belt and once Belfort gets his hands on it he’ll adore it to no end.
Or the song about an emotionally damaged girl simply gets him in the face-smashing mood…
UFC 126 takes place Saturday inside the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
