Is Belfort staying at LHW?

Has anyone read or heard what Belfort's intentions are now?

I was thinking that with the chael/Jones TUF thing happening there are a hell of a lot of dream match-ups the UFC could put on.

Belfort Vs Machida and Belfort Vs Shogun would both be crazy.

I was thinking about Belfort vs Machida the other day. That's a bad match up for Machida. Belfort is worse than Shogun once he charges in. I like both fighters so I do and don't want to watch it. Belfort vs anybody is exciting cuz he brings it.

Belfort would be the champion at MW if...

I'm just very glas to see Vitor get his opportunity against the LHW title holder. That was a battle I was afraid would not happen.

He said pre-fight that he was only moving to 205 as a favour to the UFC. I haven't heard him say anything since the fight so he may have changed his mind.

At this late stage of his career I think he should take big name fights in either class because he has the ability to be competitive with most guys at the top of both divisions.

But he never just charges in anymore. Machida would own Belfort.

Hmm... I'd see it as the opposite, I think Belfort would turn Machida's lights out.

Vitor is fast, has power to KO anyone, great BJJ (which he doesn't always utilize) and great boxing. It would be a very bad machup and ending for Lyoto.

He should stay at 205.

I'd love to see Belfort-Hendo, Belfort-Tex, Belfort-Rampage.

Not sure which if any 205 Brazilian's Vitor wouldn't care to fight. He isn't really close to any of them really, at least I don't believe he is.
