Good. Thats how it should be. Isnt the Pettis fight on here too? Great combo, although someone is bound to get hurt to mess it up.

EDIT* Sorry Best Around we posted at the same time

I really hope they give that 2 title fight card for us as an early christmas present. Fingers crossed that at least these 4 stay healthy.

Love Aldo, but they should. A champion MUST defend his title. By making interim bouts more of a common thing should give some extra incentive to injured champions to get back to shape ASAP.

Good stuff. Vitor is definitely the top challenger right now, although both Anderson/Machida were far more dangerous opponents. Weidman takes this one pretty easily via taking Vitor down at will and finishing it on the ground. TKO within 2-3 rounds is my guess. Weidman has to watch out for that power, though.

Belforts loss record is a who's who of MMA history and greatness, Weidman has a good chance here to add another great name under his legacy.

Please, don't think I am picking on you, man, but how Machida is a far more dangerous opponent than Vitor Belfort? Machida looks better at MW, no doubt, but Machida is known for his snoozy technical approaches to fights that led to so many boring decisions losing or winning, while Vitor is a deadly finisher. Since coming back to UFC, Vitor finished all his fights and only lost to the two very best in the world in title fights, one of them, short noticed and with a busted hand, while Machida had to move to MW to reinvent himself (and avoid being cut) after the Dan Henderson and Phil Davis fiascos and only finished Munoz at 185.

Vitor is a Killer. Machida, not so much, so Vitor is more dangerous than Machida by a great margin, IMO.

PS: I will accept TRT absence as a valid explanation, though.
