Popular UFC middleweight Vitor Belfort recently vowed to give fans a “behind the scenes” look at his camp as he prepares to face Anthony Johnson in a few weeks at UFC 142. “The Phenom” has since produced his first entry in the series, introducing viewers to a few of his coaches/training partners and then closing with a message affirming his mindset is wholly on getting ready for the fight rather than a future date with Wanderlei Silva or second shot at the divisional title.
“My head is on today,” Belfort explains in the clip. “Tomorrow will take care of (itself). Today is the day. Today is the day that counts. I’m gonna make every day count so on (January 14) will be the day I’m gonna perform my athleticism, techniques…but if I don’t take care of today tomorrow may not come. So we take care of today.”
Belfort-Johnson will take place as part of a PPV card featuring featherweight champion Jose Aldo defending his belt against undefeated grappler Chad Mendes. The 34-year old veteran will be looking for a second straight win since falling to Anderson Silva while Johnson will be making his middleweight debut after a successful run as an oversized 170-pounder.
