Shawn Tompkins: ‘Vitor Belfort Isn’t Loyal To Anybody’

Well, you know, Vitor has done this before. Vitor sometimes, he gets a little clouded in his head. It’s not that he brought in Mike Tyson or anything like that. Vitor just wanders, you know, and he goes where, you know, what’s happening, what’s famous, what’s popular and he’ll go over there and Mike Tyson isn’t teaching him anything. Neither is the other eight gyms that he’s training at. Just because he’s over at Couture’s and not with me doesn’t mean he’s with Couture’s. Vitor isn’t loyal to anybody. We’ve seen it before… I hope for the best for him, but you know for a guy who told me about respect, loyalty, and God and all this stuff for so many years, he sure did prove the opposite. So, we’ll see. Best of luck to him. Best of luck to Anderson, as well.

—Vitor Belfort’s former trainer Shawn Tompkins talking to Mauro Ranallo (via Fight Opinion) about Belfort jumping around to different training camps.

Shawn Tompkins clearly has some animosity towards Vitor Belfort for leaving him to return to Xtreme Couture. I don’t know what reasons Vitor had for leaving, but having a “cloudy head” heading into the biggest fight of his career probably isn’t a good thing.
