Dana White: I think Vitor Belfort is ready to fight Anderson Silva for title

The questions that surrounded Vitor Belfort (19-8 MMA, 8-4 UFC) prior to his first trip to the UFC in more than four-and-a-half years mostly centered around which version of "The Phenom" would show up.

After Belfort stunned Rich Franklin in the main event of Saturday's UFC 103 event in Dallas, the only question left seems to be when the Brazilian will get a shot at the UFC's middleweight title.

If we're talking MW's he's their best bet as Anderson's beaten everyone else.  That said Anderson via TKO in the 2nd.

both marquardt and henderson have already their shot, so let belfort slide in and do his thing. following that, the current title holder at the time can face the winner of marquardt and henderson. belfort has nothing to prove to anyone. I respect silva, great fighter, but just one win over leben then why not a former ufc light heavyweight champ that just KO'd rich franklin

I do think Henderson deserves the next shot. I like vitor belfort a lot he is my favorite 185, but if for whatever reason hendo doesnt get the next shot i think belfort and marquardt should fight winner gets silva. I think vitor would knockout nate but nate deserves his shot to be the undoubted #1 contender.

 I'd like to see Vitor vs. the winner of Bisping/Kang.  If he wins, he should get Anderson next.  Meanwhile Hendo should fight Marquardt in case Vitor loses.  If Vitor loses against the Kang/Bisping winner he should fight the loser of Hendo/Marquardt in order to make a case for being next in line.
