Anderson Silva needs a challenge, and Alan Belcher eyes a win over former middleweight contender Vitor Belfort to build way over this position.

“I am working on it. I want Vitor. It makes sense, but he has to agree,” Belcher told TATAME via email. “It would be the biggest fight of my career. He needs to fight me to be the best right now. He knows it but is smart, he knows I am hard to beat. I would appreciate the opportunity and take the fight very seriously”.

“I loved Rio when I visited. I have friends there and I would be very comfortable.  I look forward to winning the fight and winning more Brazilian fans”, he added.

It's impressive how much Belcher has improved over the years. I think he was like 21-22 in his UFC debut? This could be a good scrap. Phone Post

So Vitor wants Weidman, Weidman wants Silva, Belcher wants Vitor, Bisping wants Silva (after Stann) and Boetsch thinks he can submit Silva.

How about a battle royal Dana?

I've been beating the Belfort/Belcher drum for awhile now.

Let me just add that Weidman/Belfort is a recipe for a quick TKO by Belfort which will not elevate Belfort's standing, it will only lower Weidman. Or a 5 round pin-n-punch victory for Weidman, which does nothing to elevate Weidman and only lowers the standing of Belfort.

Belfort/Belcher will be a 5rd war, or a 2 minute KOTN. WHEN Vitor loses, it sets up a Vitor/Wand PPV for huge numbers.

WHEN Belcher wins, it combines with the Paul Harris win to legitimize him with the Brazilian fans and sets up a huge PPV against The Spider. As Sakuraba was the Gracie-Killer, so shall Alan be the Brazilian-Stomper.

If Vitor wins, he raises his stock to near title-contention.

Please, Joe-Silva Claus, make this happen. I've been such a good boy. I haven't even been banned from one forum this year.

 Big difference here between fighters hearts... Belcher want to fight a contendor ...

While Weidman wants the Champion.... We know what Dana and Joey S will do :)


Only issue is the AS camp potentially ducking Weidman (theyknow hes a nightmare matchup)

I don't care if he fights Boetsch, Vitor, or Weidman. We're going to get great match ups no matter what. Phone Post

So Belcher wants Belfort, Belfort wants Weidman, Weidman wants Silva, Silva wants Rockhold, Rockhold wants Jacare and Jacare has a fight booked already.

Good thing fighters don't do matchmaking.

 Alan's a great fighter...but he has a high risk reward system of striking.  And you can't put yourself into dangerous positions with a guy like Belfort.  I see this playing out with Alan waking up as Belfort's getting his hand raised by Herb Dean via KO.  Don't get me wrong I think Alan has all the tools in the world to make a fight any time he's in the cage.  But he's willing to exchange too much.  He has a lot of confidence in his stand up and you can't be like that with monsters that have firecracker's in both gloves.
