UFC 103 Picks: Rich Franklin vs. Vitor Belfort UFC Predictions: Tonight, beginning at 10 PM ET on PPV, the Ultimate Fighting Championship is in American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, for UFC 103 Picks: Rich Franklin vs. Vitor Belfort UFC Predictions. According to some of the best MMA Online UFC 103 Picks and Odds makers in the game at SBGglobal.com, (25-4-0) Rich Franklin [-155 ML] will be the sports betting odds favorite to defeat a very dangerous underdog opponent in (18-8-0) Vitor Belfort [+105 ML] in tonight’s main event.
Despite being listed as the clear UFC 103 Picks favorite, the former UFC middleweight champ knows better than to take his opponent lightly, as he’s seen what the former UFC light heavyweight champ can do in the Octagon.“In the early days of the UFC, he's an explosive athlete,” Franklin said of the Brazilian. “He still looks the same to me. He's got the capability to be dangerous.. It's going to be a pretty exciting match because I know the things that he does, he know the things that I do. We'll just see who's going to do it,” Franklin added.
“The Phenom” will be making his return to the UFC, after exiting to go fight all over the world and despite all the success while in the organization. Besides capturing the UFC light heavyweight title and winning the heavyweight tournament in UFC 12, Belfort has fought some of the biggest names in MMA history.
From his 44-second destruction of legendary PRIDE champion Wanderlei Silva (in his prime) at UFC Brazil, to fighting Randy Couture twice, Belfort has fought seemingly every big-name fighter of this generation including: Chuck Liddell (L, UFC 37.5), Tito Ortiz (L, UFC 51), Dan Henderson (L, PRIDE 32), Kazushi Sakuraba (L, PRIDE 5) and many others.
Now 32-years-old, training at Xtreme Couture and riding a 4-fight win streak, Belfort is content with where he is right now. “I made some bad decisions before,” Belfort said in a voice barely above a whisper. “I had fighters managing my career before. I made my own mistakes and it all kind of added up. But I’m back and I’m happy and I’ve still got the ability to do this.
“Being the youngest champion ever and having everyone talk about me, it was hard, but it is what it is. I made a statement in the sport early and because of that, there’s always going to be pressure to be that man again. People are always going to a little more from me, but I think I’ve learned to deal with it. That’s my cross I have to carry.”
