After Silva destroys Weidman Vitor can fight Wiedman. The Silva will fight Jones for the super fight (and perhaps GSP if the Canadian comes out to play) and then Vitor can fight Silva for the belt assuming he beats Weidman.

Other than the Jones fight, he's done incredibly well. Maybe VS Mousasi for the right to face Anderson?

That would be a cool fight....if Vitor would cooperate. He basically said no to that fight because Mousasi hasn't been at 185 and doesn't deserve it.

Vitor is an idiot these days.

Vitor has easily done more than most or any other contenders in this division to get a rematch. White's argument about the first fight is so flawed, especially if you compare it to JDS/Cain fight #1.

Belfort had also stepped in against JJ with an injured hand so sub attempts were his best bet.

If Anderson decides to do super fights then he shouldn't stall the division, there's lots of matches to be made with Mousasi/Bisping/Costa/Okami/Rockhold/Jacare.... plus if Rashad drops.

Stall the division? If Anderson left the belt...whoever won it wouldn't be a rightful champ anyway. Who wants to be given a belt?

Belfort vs Okami title eliminator?
Okami didnt even put up a fight against Anderson. Yeah Vitor got foot fetished but Okami had a whole round of trying to get Anderson down or strike with him and he was delt with easily. Okami needs like 3 more wins to be considered, esp after getting K.Oed by Tim "shouldnt be here" Boetsch.

What an idiotic thing to say after he was granted a title shot in the 205 division.

Anderson has earned the right to stall his division. He is the boss. Vitor is top 1 contender by a mile, but he should embrace his religion and accept what he gets, but since he is ranting, he does not believe the words he tries to pass to people.
Wait up or shut up. Plain and simple.

What's this about Vitor not being able to fight in parts of the US? Is that true, like, for real? Wow. Thats no small thing.

Ok, assuming its true, Vitor is a total numpty if he thinks he should be in with a chance at the belt.

Anderson is a terrible matchup for Vitor. Vitor has no chance and is a cheater anyway.
Make it the soccer stadium fight they've been planning since Sonnen v Silva 2.
