I acually believe vitor is yet to peak.

In an interview, Vitor was talking about xtreme cotoure, i dont remember the exact words but he was saying that , Forget everthing ive done and who I am im going to xtreme cotoure with the mindset of a white belt and all i want to do is learn.

i think this is the mondset he needs to become champion again, I think he may not become a champion but he will probly do some awsome things

also wasnt vitor supposed to be returning to the ufc a while ago?
I remember hearing that the ufc was gunna sign him, this was about 8 months ago I saw some threads on sh*tog about it

I think people tend to make Vitor out to be more than what he is. He won a fights against Silva ten years ago, Couture almost 5 years ago, and throw in a win against Herring. That's the only accomplishments of Vitor's career. He has always been overrated, and never worth the hype he receives.

War Vitor!

Watched an early PRIDE fight (at 10 I believe) just yesterday and Belfort was an absolute animal. It wasn't about the names he was fighting (this seems to be a trend in new UFC fans) but the way he went about it.

I won't neg rep you though, so don't neg rep me thinking I did like some guy the other day I disagreed with!

Lets just hope Affliction gives him a quality opponent like Mousasi. I really hope the UFC does resign him he still is only 31.

The UFC wouldn't want him because he'd be too expensive for them. You guys should learn that once you've had your cycle through the UFC and you are no longer wanted, the chances are real low of you coming back. Look at them trying to get rid of Okami and others.

The UFC doesn't need Vitor Belfort, so they have no incentive to sign him to a lucrative contract. According to their business model, they can just build up guys like Maia, Leites etc instead of signing Vitor.

Personally I'd love to see him the in the UFC. I've always been a fan of Vitor and I want to see him redeem himself. But companies like Affliction, Strikeforce etc. will give him more money and treat him better so he'll stay there. Fights with Tito, Lindland, Babalu and others sound pretty good to me, so I'll still be watching his fights outside the UFC.

If Vitor could fight like he did against Couture in the first fight and have cardio, I would say he would have a strong chance against every MW and LHW out there except Silva. Guess we shall wait and see.

I hear what you are saying but still:

I would like to see him in the UFC just because I can watch ppv's at the bar for free, but the bar is never going to buy the affliction ppv, and I sure as hell am not going to shell the money out. This means grainy you tube video like two days after the fights actually happen, which kind of sucks.
