Seriously, I think you're being a little quick to take offense. Read these portions of his quote:

It's like Matt always say, "OF course I'm lucky! The harder I work, the luckier I get!" Vitor's not saying it was a lucky punch, he's just saying that it was close until then.

...but I think that Vitor was just saying what Matt, BJ & all other great fighters say when they lose: "Sorry to my fans. I was doing everything I wanted to, but I got caught. He was just the better man tonight."
Ben, I'm with you in how I'm reading and taking what Vitor is saying. I think he is giving Anderson credit for that kick and winning the fight. The quote you had from Matt is what I think Vitor is saying....you make your own luck by training and working hard. I agree, I don't think he was saying it was just a lucky punch/kick. Like you say, a lot can get lost in translation, not to mention how writers/reporters love to "spin".
