MMADB.com Hall of Fame Inductee - Vitor Belfort Hall of Fame
Posted by Joe DiLuciano on January 14th, 2006 @ 6:24 pm
Vitor Belfort

Vitor Belfort



Aptly named The Phenom, Vitor Belfort was one of the first mixed martial artists to employ a vicious combination of speed and power. He burst onto the scene winning the UFC 12 Heavyweight Tournament with a mere 2 minutes of time in the Octagon. His first run in the UFC was ferocious and often resulted in quick, devastating finishes of his opponents.

After his initial run in the UFC, Belfort tested his skills in PRIDE in Japan where he enjoyed success but lost much of the mystique he had acquired with his dominant victories in the UFC. It wouldn't be until over 5 years later while back in the UFC that Belfort would feel championship gold around his waist again. Belfort would win the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship and avenge one of his only previous losses by defeating Randy Couture. Belfort is a fighter who always appeared to have a limitless potential and would only live up to that potential some of the time. This has caused fans and experts alike to always ask the question, which Vitor will show up tonight?

Accomplishments
- UFC 12 Heavyweight Tournament Winner

MMADB.com Hall of Fame Inductee - Maurice Smith Hall of Fame
Posted by Joe DiLuciano on November 12th, 2005 @ 1:06 am
Maurice Smith

Maurice Smith



There are not many fighters that can say their UFC debut was a championship fight. There's even less that can say they were victorious in that fight. Maurice Smith is one who can. Smith made his UFC debut against Mark Coleman for the UFC Heavyweight Championship. At the time Coleman seemed like an unstoppable force having won his first 6 UFC fights with none of them going the distance. Maurice Smith was one of, if not the first fighter to fight in the UFC that could be considered a high level striker. Smith was a world champion kickboxer. I don't think much was expected of Smith as he had very little success in MMA and came into the fight with a losing record. Smith proved all the naysayers wrong by becoming the UFC Heavyweight Champion.

Maurice Smith may not seem worthy of the Hall of Fame to some but their were 2 major things he taught the world of MMA. He was one of the first fighters to use the sprawl effectively to defeat a high level wrestler proving it was a worthwhile technique. More importantly, he showed that superior cardio can win fights. Maurice's cardio may have been the biggest weapon he brought to the table as he very rarely showed any signs of exhaustion.

Accomplishments
- UFC Heavyweight Champion
