Before Chael Sonnen emerged as the clear cut number 1 contender at middleweight with a victory over highly touted Nate Marquardt, Dana White had a clear name in mind to get the next title shot. A name who despite being a former heavyweight champion and a UFC Veteran has yet to fight for the UFC at 185, that man is Vitor Belfort and.
The Career of Belfort has been through ups and downs but at the present time he is riding a 5 fight win streak with his last 3 contests ending via KO.
While Potential match-ups with Anderson Silva Failed to materilize at 108,109 and 112. Belfort is expected to be in the mix when he returns and a fight against Nate Marquardt could have big contendership implications.
Vitor Belfort, Love or Hate?
