The UFC has been trying to, undeservedly, work him into the title picture for a long time now. He really has been thrust into it by not his own abilities, but by the amount of interest he can generate in he fight.

I think if he does fight Belfort he'll probably be given one of those "if you win then you get a title shot but not the other guy" deals. Belfort probably needs another two fights with impressive finishes to be able to get back to the title, even then I almost doubt he could get back because he can't create the emotional response that Bisping can in fans. People want to watch Bisping fights because he's a polarizing figure, you either want to see him win or get his face smashed, regardless of which people want to see him.

I guarantee that if Bisping gets a title shot it will be in Manchester.
