I wanna see Vitor Belfort vs Lyoto Machida

Both won quick fights in the 1st round with little if any damage.

Makes sense. I think Machida would win.

I've wanted to see that fight for a long time. Now it's the perfect #1 contender fight.

I really can't pick a winner in this one. So evenly matched.

Anderson Silva
Aldo - Dos Anjos - Mayday - Weidman - Machida - Jones

In a fantasy world I'd love to see this fight, but Belfort has been and currently is the #1 contender, I have no idea what else he needs to do

Let's just say this fight happens, I'd hate to say it but Lyoto would go to sleep within 2 rounds. The dragon doesn't do well to berserkers with power that come straight at him. He'd back peddle, get clipped and get finished violently.

How about get a license outside Brasil?

Somehow I knew that was coming, the not so small caveat.

Theres great matchups for Vitor at MW with Machida, Jacare, Silva 2, Mousasi and Weidman.

However I want Vitor in the next title shot. Say he beats Weidman, then we get Vitor vs Machida for the title.

Attero Dominatus.

I think that would be a horrible fight, both guys like counter punching that never ever leads to entertainment,

Don't worry he said he'd stop cheating, errr, using TRT if it meant he'd get a title shot.

I like Vitor and respect his skill, but there's no doubt TRT not only revitalized his strength and physique, but also his career.

A shame this loop hole in the system gives experienced veterans rejuvenated strength and athleticism taking away from the younger fighters natural advantage.

There'd be nothing more pleasing to me then the urine drinking dragon knocking Vitor out. Would be an excellent fight regardless.

This. The Belfort-Henderson fight was a minute of Belfort reaching his arm out to touch Hendo's hand, and then 17 seconds of Hendo rushing in and getting KO'd. Until Henderson rushed in stupidly, Belfort was doing nothing. Imagine 2 guys just circling around waiting for the other to attack, it'd be awful. Might happen, as the UFC might think Belfort vs Machida sounds good headlining a card, which it does, but I reckon the fight would suck.
