Vitor Belfort’s karate coach: “He’s even faster than ever before”

Jayme Sandall, the karate coach currently working with former UFC light heavyweight champion, Vitor Belfort has revealed the Brazilian is faster than ever leading up to his title fight with Anderson Silva this weekend at UFC 126 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sandall, speaking via Sherdog.com, said:

“Before arriving, I was a little bit anxious about whether or not we could do a good job in such a short time. But as I always say, Vitor is a phenomenon and gets everything so fast. He’s already moving a different way in the ring; his muscle explosion is at its peak. He’s even faster than he was when he was training to face Franklin.”

“We’re training really hard for this fight — twice a day, six times a week, Monday through Saturday. Vitor is working daily with a very good team of trainers. A fight is a fight. Anderson is also an amazing athlete who deserves respect, but I can say that I believe 100 percent in a win for Belfort. Now, we just have to wait and see.”
