Countdown to Sao Paulo: Part 3 – Top 5 Entrances


Every fighter has his or her own rituals in the moments preceding a fight. Some prefer to remain silent, focused only on their opponent; others choose to relax and get over the jitters. Some like heavy music to get in the mood for the fight, and others slow songs to clear their mind. The only thing that’s certain about it is that the entrance is a relevant moment that usually reveals some aspects of an athlete’s mindset.

On our countdown to UFC Sao Paulo, we’ll revisit moments that highlighted previous events in the city in a five-piece retrospective. In this chapter, let’s look at the top five entrances.

*Listed in chronological order

January 2013 – Vitor Belfort vs Michael Bisping (Watch on UFC FIGHT PASS)
It doesn’t matter how many years of experience you have, sometimes the jitters before a fight will always be there. When he faced Michael Bisping in 2013, Vitor Belfort entered the arena having a long conversation with himself, taking deep breaths and showing great concentration for the fight he would soon win by knockout.

November 2016 – Claudia Gadelha vs Cortney Casey (Watch on UFC FIGHT PASS)
Coming off a loss in a rematch for the UFC strawweight title against Joanna Jedrzejczyk, Claudia Gadelha was anxious to step right back in the Octagon and move on with her life and she made that clear when she ran straight to action with the same excitement and intensity that gave her the win over Cortney Casey that night.
