White likes the idea of Weidman vs. Belfort next and in Brazil
Earlier this week Chris Weidman expressed an interest in his next fight being with Vitor Belfort and today Dana White said he'd like to make that fight happen, and maybe in Brazil:
“We want to make that fight happen,” UFC President Dana White told reporters in Dublin on Friday. “That's the next fight. That fight should've already happened before the Machida. That's the fight we want to do and that's the fight that Chris Weidman wants. I love this kid calling out Vitor.
“The champ wants to fight Vitor Belfort, man. I don't blame him, I would too.”
“It doesn't have to take place in Nevada,” White said of Weidman-Belfort. “That fight would be big in Brazil, too.
“I would do it Brazil. As long as the commission clears him, yeah. We'd want the okay from Nevada, and if Nevada was cool with it, I'd do it in Brazil.”
