Vitor Belfort discusses his KO win over Terry Martin at Affliction Banned last Saturday night. Amazingly he broke his hand early in the fight and was still able to end the fight with a big KO.

The first punch I threw. It was a straight left. I knew right away it broke. But I had to keep going. I couldn’t throw my combinations I had worked on. Coach Tompkins was yelling at me to throw my combos. At the end of the first round I went back to the corner and Tompkins was yelling at me, “Why don’t you throw your combos?” I said, “My hand is broken”. He said, “Ok” and Randy said, “Just go first. Go for it and finish the fight”.

I said to myself, “Ok, I’ll do that”. It was great chemistry in the corner. I went out and I did what they said.

    Vitor's tough as nails and his early vale tudo days are a testament to his character.
