Vitor Belfort isn't worried about weight or stamina heading into facing Jon Jones on short notice at UFC 152. That's because the veteran fighter knows his greatest challenge will be Jones himself, writes Brett Okamoto. Story
It will be Jones' first fight since his decision last month not to face Chael Sonnen on eight days' notice. After that decision, UFC officials canceled their event scheduled for Sept. 1 in Las Vegas.
Jones has taken most of the blame for the cancellation of UFC 151. And based on fan reaction Friday when he walked onto the stage to weigh in, it will take a while before they forgive him.
Fans at Mattamy Athletic Centre at The Gardens booed loudly when Jones appeared. The booing increased when he stepped on the scale.
Through it all the heavily bearded Jones maintained a big smile on his face.
The fans cheered loudly for Belfort and chanted his named repeatedly.
"I worked very hard for this fight and to be on this platform," Belfort said. "To be able to fight Jon Jones, the new era of our sport, the new breed, is an honor."
