As to whether I believe he deserves one: No. As hyped as Belfort is, we've sen him fight 2x in the last two years. And both fights ended quickly.
I understand Vitor's legacy, but I don't understand why everyone has him pegged as #2 with a W over Franklin at a catchweight.
I understand the MW division is lacking, but how about a fight against someone in the top 5. Marquardt? Maia?
Vitor is not anywhere near #2. If he really had to work his way to a title shot, he would never get one because okami/sonnen/anyone with decent wrestling will wear him out and Vitor will once again break under pressure.
