They just RAWR.

"I know who I am. One time they asked God, 'Who you are? Who I should tell who you are?' He said, 'Just tell, I am who I am.' So, I am who I am. For you, I am who I am. I don't apologize because lions don't apologize to be lions."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight number one contender, Vitor Belfort, is confident that he will defeat Chris Weidman in the UFC 181 pay-per-view (PPV) main event on Dec. 6, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada, but won't share his blueprint for doing it. He will, however, let the haters know he's unfazed by their criticism because he is a lion and won't apologize for it. "The Phenom" recently came under fire for his drug testing woes (more on that here) and some of his fellow mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters have been taking him to task for what could be perceived as special treatment by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC). We'll see who has the last laugh at UFC 181, assuming the lion doesn't get bit by this.
