UFC on FX 8 Video Preview: Predicting Luke Rockhold vs. Vitor Belfort

Jeremy BotterMMA Senior WriterNovember 1, 2016

Saturday night's event on FX features a main event that I'm quite looking forward to: Luke Rockhold taking on Vitor Belfort

Rockhold, the former Strikeforce middleweight champion, is making his long-awaited UFC debut. If you like his chances in this fight, then you also likely think he deserves a shot at Anderson Silva, especially if he earns a win over the veteran Belfort.

But there's a twist for Rockhold, as he's not just facing one man. No, this one is a handicap of sorts. I'll explain that in the video, so make sure you watch it.

Once you're done watching me preview the fight, I want to see your own previews in the comments below. Will Belfort continue to be the "new young old lion," or will Rockhold cement his place near the top of the division by beating a legend? 

Where can I comment?
