Vitor Belfort Invited Mike Tyson Into His UFC 126 Training Camp

“I was at his house and met his family. I met his daughter and wife, who is pregnant. It’s always nice to be in touch with people like him… Mike Tyson is a big idol, and he crossed the boundaries of sport. He was a great inspiration to many athletes and in my career since I was a child. We have much in common and had fame too soon. We always have good conversations… I told him that he’s used badly, because he has great views of fighting. He knows a lot of martial arts, but they aren’t given the proper value. He said he wanted to be part of my camp, and it was a pleasure to be part of my training. I told him to come in and give me some tips. He’s an important person in the sport and was a great motivator for many successful fighters. I think it’s important to have a recovery.”
