If Vitor wins again at Affliction, should UFC re-sign him?

I mean, he's still a draw, after all. I know a lot of casual fans who still ask me where he is and what he's up to. And from what I've read, he wasn't to come back.

Vitor's more well-rounded now than he ever was, and he's still only 31 years old. A win over a good-quality opponent at Day of Reckoning would put him on a four-fight, two-year winning streak.

Best of all, this Vitor seems to have heart. Zikic dropped him early, and he battled back for a solid decision. He busted his hand against Martin, and still knocked the fool out.

I say if he beats someone good, then ink him for some bouts at 185. Any thoughts?

Well I don't see why not. He's better than some fighters inside the UFC, so why not have him, rather than them.. right?

However, there are tons of fighters I'd love to see in the UFC And the effort just doesn't seem to be being made.. Why isn't Rog Nog in the UFC by now? It's annoying.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Depends on the fashion of the victory, if its a total annihilation then yeah the UFC should resign him, will they resign him? probably not.

It's strange, with most fighters they seem to get better with age.

But Vitor and Tito both peaked early, then the competition caught up with them FAST.

The Phenom was the man back in the day. I'd sure love if he could revitalize his career.

Vitor could be a huge draw if he can get back to smashing fools. But I fear the game may have passed him by.

I know Vitor has looked good at MW lately but I still long to see a rematch with Wanderlei.

But if the UFC wanted him to fight at MW thats cool too. I mean cmon, its Vitor! He gets the bitches panties wet, and when he unleashes on dudes like Eastman, my panties get just as wet lol Nah but seriously, the dude is a dangerous fighter that can still draw fans.

Who knows, Vitor's best days could still be ahead of him.

Yeah, most folks forget he's so young, because he's been around for so long.
