He would never beat Sonnen. Vitor, as much as I like the guy as a fighter and a man, hes a choker. And he will always lose to a grappler.

Hopefully he gets a shot at Anderson, that would be the best match Zuffa can make for him at this point.

It is already pretty much set in stone that Vitor will fight the winner of that bout. Saying that I do not see Vitor beating either one of them. He is more of a name at 185 then anything right now. Yes, he can beat people in the division, but any any tittle aspirations he may have are a bit far-fetched at this poin in his career.

That's what I thought at first too (especially because Vitor was a name back when I originally watched the UFC [YEARS ago]).

However, Vitor's not really all that old. Also, he destroyed Rich Franklin. The only other person that destroyed Franklin was (oh yeah) Anderson Silva.

I really think Vitor Belfort is the most overrated MW in the game right now.... it's getting bad.

I meant since Franklin came into the UFC. As much as I love Franklin, that's about the extent of my knowledge of him. :(

But yeah, Machida ain't a bad fighter himself. :)

Vitor is a beast but he is not mentally tough if he can't end the fight early he withers.

vitor needs to fight alan belcher! I know he is next in line for a titleshot, but that fight is at least 6months away, so a fight in the meantime make sense. That fight would clear all doubt that he's the #1 contender(if vitor win), it would also make the titlefight 'bigger' and who doesnt want to see belfort slug it out with belcher.! Maybe on the same card as silva vs sonnen, that would be something!

I could see Belcher beating Vitor if Vitor didn't get the KO in the first minute. Toxic's completely right about Vitor, he's very exciting early but wilts (doesn't gas, just... wilts) if the fight starts going the other guy's way.

IMO Sonnen would beat Vitor 8 times out of 10.

The Anderson v. Vitor fight is just fun because Vitor's so dynamic and dangerous early. Even if Vitor KO'd Anderson I wouldn't rate him on the same level, I can't see Vitor ever racking up multiple title defences like Anderson has. Personally I'd rather see Anderson fight top contenders at LHW.
