Vitor Belfort claims he will be fighting Matt Lindland on October 11 for the Middleweight Title at Affliction's second event. This confirms an early rumor I heard. The thing I love about Affliction is they are putting fighters into tough matches. They aren't worried about fighters getting losses and what it will mean a year from now. There is no year from now if they do not draw fans to their upcoming events.
Belfort looked solid in his win over Terry Martin. Once he turned it on in the second round, it was over. Lindland, on the other hand, was not as sharp. He looked flabby and could barely move late in the fight. He will need to be in top form to beat Belfort, though. That guy is a warrior.
