Should Vitor Belfort Get Another Title Shot?


Vitor Belfort is fighting against former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold at UFC on FX 8. If he defeats Rockhold, is another title shot on the horizon?

It doesn’t look like he looking for a rematch in particular, he just wants the gold:

“Let me be clear, I am not looking for a rematch with anyone. What I want is the belt. It doesn’t matter who has it. I feel that I am starting my career right now. I feel young enough to keep fighting for a bunch more fights. I have been fighting and winning all the fights in my division. I think I deserve a title shot.”

It would be hard to deny the winner of this fight a shot at the middleweight  title. Belfort would make for an intriguing opponent, especially if Chris Weidman is able to pull off the upset against Anderson Silva.

What do you say? Are there other contenders worthy of competing for UFC middleweight gold?

    I figure if he has the drive and is still in his game to fight, why not?

    The best case scenario is an intense and active fight, or worst case a swift and always crowd pleasing knockout. I am sure he will get offered the title shot.
