Jeremy Botter@jeremybotterMMA Senior WriterMay 13, 2013

One of the most anticipated fights of 2013—at least on my own personal calendar—takes place this Saturday night in Brazil when Luke Rockhold makes his UFC debut against Vitor Belfort in the main event of UFC on FX 8.

Rockhold, the former Strikeforce middleweight champion, is considered a potential contender for Anderson Silva's UFC championship.

Bleacher Report recently caught up with Rockhold to discuss everything surrounding the Belfort fight. Watch the video above and then leave your prediction for the fight in the comments below.
