UFC 142 BJJ Black Belt Vitor Belfort Wins via Rear Naked Choke

After a fast start with an attack by Rumble, BJJ black belt Vitor Belfort had his hands full with the bigger middle weight Anthony Johnson, in the first round Rumble came out fast and furious to attack The Phenom inĀ  what seemed to be a storm being weathered by the bigger fighter in Rumble, Vitor took his back after a flurry of punches and kicks by Rumble Johnson, it looked as though Rumbles weight cut and dehydration may have gotten the best of him, he looked gassed right before being thrown to the ground and with only 60 seconds to go a rear naked choke applied by The Phenom , he wins in UFC 142 with merely seconds left in the 1st for a very much needed win.

This is Vitor’s one of few submissions wins , he normally knocks out his opponents in a flurry of punches he normally doesn’t use his submission skills to finish fights, but we are glad he used his BJJ skills to close out the fight.
