Vitor Belfort opens up on training camp for Anthony Johnson

Vitor Belfort will be the first coach on TUF Brasil later this year. First, however, “The Phenom” will compete in his native country against Anthony Johnson at UFC 142: Aldo vs. Mendes.

UFC 142 takes place January 14 from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil’s HSBC Arena. The main event will feature Jose Aldo defending his UFC featherweight title against Chad Mendes.

Belfort has decided to allow everyone the chance to see him train for Johnson, inviting a camera into his camp in the weeks leading up to the fight. After the bout, Belfort will begin coaching on TUF alongside Wanderlei Silva, who he will meet later in 2012.

“We are four weeks from the fight,” Belfort said. “The camp is going great. All my coaches are here. We got a great camp, great guys coming out; it’s fun.”
