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.

According to UFC president Dana White's comments at the evening's post-fight press conference, it might not be long

 Wow, now there's a surprise.

This is why they matched up Franklin with Vitor in the first place. Foregone conclusion with a Vitor win. Franklin has lasted longer in both fights against Silva than anybody, ergo Vitor finishes him, he gets a title shot.

since it was a foregone conclusion that vitor would win, i guess you must have made a ton of cash betting on it, right?

 No, I'm suggesting that a Vitor fight against Anderson was a foregone conclusion if Vitor wins, which he did. Especially in spectacular fashion.  I am not saying it was a foregone conclusion he would win.

The talk was about Vitor v Anderson when Vitor signed with the UFC in the first place. You match him with Franklin, he wins he has legitimate claim to a shot at the title. Simple really.

As for Hendo and Marquardt, if they wanted one of those two to face off against Silva again they would have made that fight already. Instead, they were looking at having to fight each other in a #1 contender fight before either got a shot.  It isn't like this is a surprise. I almost feel like Capt Obvious having to explain this.

 Anderson interested in this fight at all?  With all the rumors I haven't been able to keep up with what he's doing next.  I'd like to see Vitor fight another top 5 before getting a title shot.  Very impressed with the Franklin win tho, not many guys can do that to Rich.

 fuck Anderson vs Hendo II
the only way Hendo can win is via LAY AND PRAY

Dana sees this, so he doesnt want that shit. Vitor will bang with Anderson.
Vitor vs Anderson is a much better fight on paper and for the fans.

 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.

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.

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.
