I like that people think Okami deserves a title shot over Vitor. Neither Okami or Vitor looked great against Anderson, but Vitor has been more impressive since the loss to Jones. Neither should be fighting for a title, I would rather see Rashad drop to 185 and get a shot.

I like how people claim that Rashad deserves the shot over guys like Okami/Belfort who have both looked much more impressive. And don't get me wrong I am a Shad fan, a big shad fan. I think the old Shad would give Silva run for his belt, but not now

Vitor is number one contender in 185, no doubt, but since he had his chance already and got anihilated, and also because himself mentioned his history with the sport, he must wait for Anderson's eventual superfights to come. Anderson is making his history still, and he has priority. In this matter.

Vitor has earned a rematch. Anyone who says otherwise is a chump plain and simple.

Sure I guess he has. But the fight would HAVE to be in Brazil since Vitor is part of the TRT club. And wouldn't look nearly as good without it in the States.

Anderson is a terrible matchup for Vitor. Vitor has no chance and is a cheater anyway.

Rashad is nowhere near mentally strong enough right now to step in there with the guy that this forum claims to be a Jedi. He would already be beaten from the moment the sign the fight.

Vitor has been very impressive and they're going to have to do something about him. Hes going to keep KOing title contenders viciously. Does lightning strike twice and Anderson KO's him in epic fashion again? I'd like to think not, I really did buy into thinking that Vitor was a big threat to the title.

And that's probably the main reason why White is so reluctant about that fight. He doesn't want to risk getting, by some weird chance ("fight is the fight"), a champ that couldn't even reasonably fight in the US.

Thats what im saying about Rashad is that he's not a current threat to Silva. If he was with Jackson still then maybe.

Vitor and his TRT have been impressive. Make him fight in the states and we shall see

As much as I agree with Vitor, I want to see that fight with Mousasi first. If he wins that, he definitely, without question, deserves a titleshot.

Hell, Vitor vs Okami/Munoz/Costa would be great.fights too. So many other good fights for Vitor in the middleweight division.
